Cornerstone Landing Youth Services says it is excited to partner with Algonquin College in Perth to build a Tiny Home prototype. 

“This will be used to pilot an innovative rural response to emergency housing while also providing an opportunity to determine the skills training and postsecondary education that Ontario needs to support low-carbon building,’ said the organization in a release. 

Cornerstone is hosting a project launch event at the Perth Campus of Algonquin College on November 30th, 2018 to meet with College representatives,

Cornerstone Landing Board members, the architect, builder, energy consultant, local planners, local elected officials and Tiny Home advocates. A Tiny Home is a small, simple dwelling designed to be eco-friendly and affordable.

Cornerstone Landing Youth Services Board Chair, Terrilee Kelford will speak with Chris Hahn, Dean of Algonquin College, Perth Campus at 1:30pm about the project goals and history and the state of youth homelessness in rural Lanark County.

To find out more about this project, please contact Terrilee Kelford, Chair, Cornerstone Landing Youth Services at 613-285-9292 cell or or Chris Hahn, Dean, Algonquin College, 613-727-4723 or
