City of Fredericton Affordable Housing Committee
The city formed this very active committee in 2006. It started as an ad-hoc group, but since the need for advocacy just continued to grow, it was granted full committee status in 2009.
I have the honor of chairing this group of dedicated, passionate people. Membership includes the Fredericton Emergency Shelter, the Chamber of Commerce, the John Howard Society, the Fredericton Home Builders, the Fredericton Real Estate Board, the Community Action Group on Homelessness, CMHC, Skigin-Elnoog (off-reserve aborignal housing), Provincial and Federal representatives, and several others.
