Congress 2016 in Montreal will convene over 750 delegates for four days of professional development and engagement – offering a unique program of over 40 workshops, plenary sessions, social events, mobile tours, keynotes and more, to meet the needs and interests of our members and participants.

Jean-Yves Duclos was Director of the Department of Economics and a tenured professor at l’Université Laval. As a well-published author, conference speaker, and renowned economics expert, he was often asked to comment on current events in Quebec and Canada. More Information.

What is Home?

Children speaking about what is home to them.
In April 2013, Red Door housing Society and Entre Nous Femmes took part in the first Advocacy Day for affordable housing on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, organized by the Canadian Housing and Renewal Association (CHRA). We were to meet with politicians to discuss the need for the federal government to once again engage itself in making accessible, affordable housing more available to all Canadians. We decided that instead of presenting endless statistics and research papers to the politicians we met with, we needed something that really got to the ‘heart’ of the matter—what better way than to have children explain, in their own words, what having their own room, in their own home, means to them? We hope this video touches your heart, too, and gives you some food for thought on how you can help make affordable housing a reality in Canada for all families in need.
