From all of us here at BCNPHA, AHMA and CHF BC, thank you for being part of the 2021 Housing Central Conference. We welcomed more than 1,000 delegates from throughout BC and across Canada for three days of learning, connection and discovery, and it was wonderful to see everyone networking across the platform.

We hope you were inspired by this year’s line-up of plenary speakers, who delivered thought-provoking keynote addresses ranging from diversity to Indigenomics, disability rights, mental health and climate change. Keep the conversation going! Share your memories of the speakers’ knowledge and ideas through social media using #HousingCentral.

The education sessions generated lively discussions in the chat boxes, with many that carried over to the Learning Lounges. The sessions were recorded and are now available to watch on demand; please note a small number of sessions will not be available due to speaker restrictions, sensitive content, or because they were hosted on an external platform.

Did you get a chance to check out the Art Expo, Dislocation and Resilience? There’s still time to explore the impressive works by both professional artists and people with lived experience of homelessness, and to purchase items. We also encourage you to share the videos honouring the BCNPHA award winners – they’re available here.

Once again, thank you so much for helping us to make the 2021 Housing Central Conference a great success! We look forward to seeing you at the next Housing Central Conference from Nov. 21 to 21, 2022.
