Kitchener's Lived Expertise Working Group Priorities 2022

Jul 15 2022

The 12 members of the Lived Expertise Working Group started working together in May. They set their own rules for working together, the Space Agreement, to allow for safe and honest sharing of the knowledge and experiences. They come from diverse backgrounds, yet, share passion for the human right to housing. In July, after the orientation to the City of Kitchener's Housing Strategy, Social Development Centre's Lifelong Engagement approach, and the city and the regional government responsibilities, they went through a convergence exercise to determine their priorities for the year ahead: advocating for supports to people living in encampments and contributing to closer collaboration among different levels of government on housing.
