Winnipeg Housing and Homelessness Initiative (WHHI) Final Report
Institute of Urban Studies
City of Winnipeg
Over a four week period, The Institute of Urban Studies undertook a series of public consultations with approximately 140 housing stakeholders and members of the general public. The purpose of these sessions was to help inform the City of Winnipeg in its efforts to revise housing policy and provide context for the SpeakUp Winnipeg process. In particular, the sessions focused on housing affordability issues as they pertain to the City of Winnipeg’s limited role in housing policy. As a result, it is important to note that this consultation process, while fruitful, must be seen within this constrained scope, rather than as an overall study on Winnipeg’s housing issues. This report first outlines the processes undertaken and then moves to present the results. The report ends with a series of policy considerations. Appendix material includes the invitation, the presentation materials used and the comments as recorded by the facilitators.
