In 2018, Jackson and Associates was retained by the University of Winnipeg Community Renewal Corporation (UWCRC) and the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation to carry out research and prepare a report on the investments in social enterprise and affordable and mixed housing by the Corporation as part of the renewal of Winnipeg’s downtown area.  Cooperating with all levels of government, private developers, high-net worth donors, community and indigenous organizations, and working closely with individual University departments, the Corporation serves as a facilitator, broker, deal-maker and manager of a portfolio of important social infrastructure holdings.


The project is ongoing.
