Creating a legacy of social housing

This report tells the story of how Housing New Zealand responded to the aftermath of the earthquakes, the formation of its Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Programme (CERP) and the impacts the earthquakes had on its properties, thousands of tenants and its own staff. 
Housing New Zealand was the owner of more than 6,000 properties in Christchurch and in the Waimakariri District. It was the largest landlord in Canterbury and looked after 18,000 tenants.
