Hamilton, a city in The Greater Toronto Area in Canada, aims to bring new ideas to affordable housing challenges

On May 10-11 delegates from several Nordic countries are expected to take part in a two-day workshop intended to bring new ideas to Hamilton's growing focus on affordable and sustainable housing by letting the Nordic companies showcase Nordic best practices and solutions on sustainable and affordable housing.

One of the main goals of the workshop is to bring in experiences from the Nordic cities who have been able to transition from industrial cities in the 20th century to liveable greener economies today, and the workshop in Hamilton is an example of the interest North American cities have for Nordic ideas to city challenges.
