Description

Please join us for the first forum in the CPRC Policy Connect Series, bringing together thought leaders from across fields and sectors to discuss the big questions in rental reform and innovation.

Taking a consumer-centred approach, this landmark event aims to change the policy conversation around the private rental system. Collectively we will explore how to:

  • Empower consumers
