For sure. We work with the groups that are there.
I'll talk about two things.
As part of the national housing strategy, there's the technical resource centre, which is a $70-million program for the sector by the sector. We're working with some proponents at the moment to try to finalize a contract with them so they will be able to service that capacity for the sector by the sector. That's one tool.
For individual groups that may have lost...or may not have done something for a while, coming in to get a loan or get a grant, there's work to be done. At CMHC, we've revamped some of our old tools to align them with the national housing strategy. If there's a group out there that's trying to figure out how to go about it, our seed funding program may be available for them to do the initial thinking that could help them put together their proposal, eventually, but look at the need, look at what is possible in the city.
Even municipalities have some significant tools. We met with one northern municipality yesterday. We were talking with the mayor and the city manager about the speed of approval for affordable.... That can make a significant difference, or abatement, or foregoing the tax. Cities can do that.
The reason for the partnership is that we don't want to do something that doesn't work in the community. London knows better than I know in Ottawa what projects should be there.
The other thing I would say is to talk to our folks on the ground. They will help the groups navigate. They will help the groups find the tools. The groups don't need to navigate that by themselves. We have folks out there who can say, “I know who's in London” or “I know who's in Brampton” or “I know who's in Saskatoon”, and they can help bring the projects to realization.
