1) Understanding Shelter Affordability Issues: Towards a Better Policy Framework (Smetanin) Housing affordability has become an increasing problem for a growing number of Canadian households. To identify and connect the concepts and factors that contribute to the affordability challenges of shelter, CANCEA created and will presnt a Shelter Consumption Affordability Ratio (SCAR index) that focuses upon the consumption needs of shelter.   

2) Social Equity Impact Assessment (Brenman) 
Social equity impact assessment is a set of tools to help determine what the logical and foreseeable consequences of a project will be on disadvantaged groups developed by the presenter after work on successful civil rights and environmental justice legal cases. It allows infrastructure developers, operators, service providers, and governments to avoid adverse impacts of their work on traditionally disadvantaged communities.
