    It is largely understood that property investment is intrinsically tied to wealth accumulation - and that marginalized communities have suffered from inequitable access to such opportunities. Is there a model that allows community members to invest in their own neighbourhoods while simultaneously preserving asset affordability and neighbourhood stability?
    Recently, ULI Toronto convened a roundtable of social purpose real estate leaders to think about new models that would create wealth-building opportunities for smaller, community investors. Join us to learn about existing models, including land trusts and co-operatives, and new ideas that are emerging to develop and preserve social purpose real estate in the urban market. 
    Read more on the findings from the roundtable in the TAP Report.
