Read what our staff say about the rewards of working at CWH:

“Everybody working at City West Housing cares about our mission and is focused on taking the stress out of housing for our residents. Our housing helps real people live in the city close to services, amenities and employment opportunities.”

Elizabeth, Development Team

“I didn’t know about affordable housing until I came to work here but I grew up in public housing so I knew there was a real need. I love the culture here and I want to progress my career internally.”

Perry, OPERATIONS Team

“For me, the job satisfaction is far greater in the community sector than in the corporate world. Even though it can be very busy, the team is always supportive and uplifting and there is great camaraderie.”

Andrea, Operations Team

“I feel I work in a team and in a company that supports my growth. I have the flexibility to be creative, to make programs my own, to invest my passion in them, and to deliver great outcomes for our residents.”

Alanna, Communities & Operations Teams

“I feel like I’m valued here and asked to contribute to some very important projects which has helped to support my career development. Now that I have a young child, City West Housing gives me the flexibility I need to be a good mother as well as a good employee.”

Ramya, Finance Team

“What I love about working in this industry is being able to help someone find a more permanent home, which makes them feel safe. Working in a frontline role and having the opportunity to directly help people who are often at a very challenging time in their lives really makes me passionate about this work, which is something I’ve never really felt about other fields I’ve worked in.”
