March 24, 2022 Speaker – Community Housing Transformation Center – Brian Clifford
Brian is the Program Manager with CHTC – Brian is the program manager for British Columbia. Having grown up in a single parent household, he learned from a young age the value and necessity of housing as a human right, and how it acts as a pillar for community strength, safety, and stability.
Over the last 10 years, Brian has devoted his career to furthering the expansion of the community-housing sector in B.C. and Canada. Most recently, he spent seven years with the BC Non-Profit Housing Association contributing to research, policy and to advocacy initiatives aimed at strengthening the sector. He is excited to bring his passion for community housing to the Center, and see the sector grow to become a substantial and foundational piece of Canada’s housing system. Brian holds a master’s degree in Urban Studies from Simon Fraser University.
