Catalyst’s innovative non-profit developer model has made it possible to add 49 brand new affordable rental homes in Victoria. I want to say how proud I am, as Mayor of Victoria, of this project. This is perfection.

When I met Catalyst I knew that I was with people who understood the vision I was presenting and that we shared many of the same goals. Proof of this is our work together as joint venture partners.
