The resources available on this page will help you learn more about Community Land Trusts (CLTs): what they are, what they do, how they operate, some examples of existing CLTs, and how the model can be applied in Hamilton.
The five-year strategic action plan was developed over 2 years. It was a collaborative effort, involving the input of hundreds of diverse stakeholders through community workshops, interviews, facilitated planning sessions and events.
This report describes how cities are investing in existing CLTs and starting news ones. It teaches community developers the mechanisms, methods, and model practices that are being used to guide urban development and support affordable housing initiatives.
The HCLT is a non-profit corporation that owns land in the name of citizens and leases it back to social-purpose organizations and individuals in order to help meet needs that are prioritized by the community.
Donations are accepted through our charitable partner the Social Planning and Research Centre (SPRC).
