Inclusive Housing Partnerships & Movement

What we learned

When we talk about the social impacts of housing versus just the physical impacts of housing we can improve the health and well-being of people and communities. The need to move forward on inclusive housing was evident in our Lab. We heard:

  • Inclusive housing is not just for one population
  • Organizations often do not work together across populations
  • Government, private and community sectors are not well connected
  • Siloed thinking leads to siloed actions and less power

Priority actions from our roadmap

Priority Action 1

Establish a Municipal-level Inclusive Housing Partnership Facilitator with the City of Fredericton. Evaluate and explore ways to replicate this role in other communities (including Saint John).

Priority Action 2

Establish a Provincial Inclusive Housing Partners Table or Coalition for the purpose of aligning and co-creating policies, programs and innovations between the Government of New Brunswick and other provincial stakeholders.
