Moderated by co-op member Darrah Teitel from Abiwin Housing Co-op in Ottawa, it featured panelists Margaret Pfoh (Aboriginal Housing Management Association), Paul Kershaw (Generation Squeeze) and Shachi Kurl (Angus Reid Institute).

The Vision Panel touched on issues such as the struggle of Millennials to find housing, the lack of proper and self-determined housing by Indigenous peoples in Canada, and how housing co-ops can be a significant contributor to address these and other urgent housing issues. The panel helped set the context for members’ decision to pass a resolution the following day endorsing a shared vision for Canada’s co-op housing movement.
