The Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Funding Social Housing in Canada
The Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Funding Social Housing in Canada, by Alexandra Moskalyk, looks at the role currently played by public-private partnerships (PPPs) in social housing development in Canada and assesses their future potential as a mechanism for financing the development and maintenance of social housing. Using case studies, the paper examines how partnerships can better use scarce public resources efficiently and equitably to meet the housing needs of low-income earners.
The CPRN/SHSC Housing Research Internship and Scholar Program is funded by SHSC and run by CPRN. The program's overall aim is to develop Canada's housing research and policy capacity by attracting and retaining the best and the brightest in the housing sector. The program is an intensive four-month policy research training experience that results in the publication of original housing policy research. For information on SHSC, go to www.shscorp.ca.
