If Covid-19 has reinforced anything for us, it is that change is our only constant. Some of the changes imposed by this global pandemic have been large and fundamental, others small and incremental. While the lasting impacts of pandemic change will only be realized as they become routinized into our collective futures, Covid has already brought many issues into sharper focus.
From managing health and environmental emergencies, to addressing social and economic inequities and housing future generations of Canadians, join us as rennie’s VP of Advisory Services, Andrew Ramlo reflects on some of the lessons learned to date, presents our new outlook for people and housing in the region, and ponders how we can collectively engage in shaping our next new normal.
Please join us for this session from the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh).
