Black communities across Canada are creating community land trusts to secure affordable housing and vibrant commercial spaces on community-owned land.

Following the Liberated Land Trust Tour, a landmark international study tour, the Canadian Network of Community Land Trusts is gathering leaders from this growing movement to share key lessons from the trip and amplify their work to a national audience.

Whether you’re well-versed in community land trusts or have never heard of them, we encourage you to join us!
