"It is an exciting social innovation to have a not-for-profit investment vehicle dedicated to student housing," explains Marguerite Mendell, Chair of the Board of the PUSH Fund and Professor at Concordia University. She adds that "the first project we are funding in Montreal, developed by UTILE, is a steppingstone towards meeting the need for student housing throughout the province, and the Fund is designed to integrate other private and public investors."
