Housing: What have we done?

Homelessness is on the rise across the Lower Mainland. But not in New Westminster. Join us for a hard look at the political,historical and social roots of the crisis. Explore how our perception of housing has shifted from home to commodity, and learn how the City of New Westminster has emerged as a leader in fighting homelessness.
