Housing Cambridge (Cambridge Non-Profit Housing Corporation) was incorporated in 1986. Of the seven original directors, four were City Councillors. Cambridge City Council now appoints two of its members to the Housing Cambridge Board of Directors. The remaining Directors are volunteers from the community. Some of these community volunteers are also Housing Cambridge tenants. All of our tenants are members of the Corporation and can vote at the organization’s annual general meeting.
The Housing Cambridge Board of Directors is responsible for the sound governance of the organization. Operating budgets are closely monitored by the Board, which ensures proper financial accountability and fiscal responsibility. Operating and capital replacement funds are limited and are used on a priority basis to address maintenance and operational issues.
Lisa brings to the Board considerable professional experience and expertise in facilities management. She has works for Wilfred Laurier University, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board and the Regional Municipality of Waterloo in a variety of capital program administration, maintenance and facilities management roles. Lisa was our primary contact while at the Region of Waterloo for the Social Housing Renovation and Retrofit Program (SHRRP).
Retired from the manufacturing sector of Cambridge Dan now, with his wife Fran, is a resident in a Housing Cambridge apartment. He loves to be involved in his community, supporting wherever possible local business and activities. He is also very active in his church, being the organist for more than three decades. His interests include music, photography, painting, and helping others when needed. Sharing music from his balcony during the pandemic has been a real joy.
