On February 27th at 12pm, the OASIS Housing Committee will launch a new Housing Report, Assessing DS Sector Preparedness for Housing at a webinar exploring the critical topic of Municipal Zoning and its implications for the Developmental Services Sector.

The Webinar will explore what zoning is and isn’t, distinguishing it from building codes, fire regulations, and licensing requirements to ensure a better understanding of its significance and the various municipal approaches as well as recent changes.

Presenters will share first-hand experiences of navigating unique approaches to mitigate by-law challenges as well as offering valuable insights into individualized solutions.

The webinar will feature recommendations on possible strategies in engaging with municipals governments and a Q&A where you can seek clarification, share insights, and explore further nuances of the topic.

Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of municipal zoning’s impact on DS services and explore actionable steps toward positive change.
