National Housing Day

This roundtable of housing experts was designed and facilitated as a new federal housing strategy was launched.

  • Sean Gadon, City of Toronto, Director, Affordable Housing Office

  • Heather Tremain, CEO, Options for Homes

  • Jack Winberg, CEO, Rockport Group

  • Adam Vaughan, MP, Trinity Spadina

  • Diane Walter, Executive Director, Margaret’s
