“It's a matter of really changing the housing strategy completely in our country and coming up with things that make more sense.” — @MKenneyCAPREIT
While there are regional variations, it’s no secret that, for many people in Canada, housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable. Today’s guest, however, believes that the answer to solving Canada’s housing crisis is right in front of us. In this episode, we sit down with Mark Kenney, President and CEO of CAPREIT, to discuss some of the policies that are driving rapidly escalating housing costs in the country and why a land lease approach is the obvious solution. Mark has nearly 30 years of experience in the multifamily sector, having previously held senior positions at Realstar Management Partnership, Greenwin Property Management, and Tridel. He is also a board member and prior chair of the Federation of Rental Housing Providers of Ontario, a board member of St. Hilda's Towers, and a founding board member of the GTAA. For those who don't know, CAPREIT is Canada's largest publicly traded provider of rental housing, which owns or has interests in nearly 67,000 residential apartment suites, townhomes, and manufactured housing community sites across Canada, the Netherlands, and Ireland. Tuning in today, you’ll get a glimpse into what the land lease model entails, who it appeals to, and why affordable housing is within reach for Canadians, so make sure not to miss this insightful conversation with CAPREIT’s Mark Kenney!
