The Neighbourhood Land Trust

The Neighbourhood Land Trust’s partnership with Building Up has been an important opportunity to build and support a long term mutual commitment to social and community goals - improving the NLT’s portfolio of affordable housing for the benefit of tenants, building skills in the trades and supporting construction careers for equity-deserving community members, and together, improving our capacities, systems and practices. The Neighbourhood Land Trust looks forward to continuing our meaningful and rewarding collaboration for many more years. Together we can build a more inclusive local economy.
