Dave Howard is an award-winning entrepreneur who helped pioneer the first tiny home village in Canada. Dave delivers a high-energy keynote presentation, with a track record of integrity, creativity, and passion to entertain at every event.

In co-founding and leading the Homes For Heroes Foundation, audiences gain a perspective of how Canada’s first tiny home village came to life, how David succeeded when no one thought he would, the Veterans his teams work for, the growth of the program and how the charity is changing lives every day. Homelessness has been ignored in Canada for decades and it continues to get worse. Innovative ideas need to be explored, and David believes there is no singular solution to end the issue of homelessness.

Dave is the CEO and Co-Founder of the Homes For Heroes Foundation, a Veterans housing initiative; the Director and Founder of Canadian Legacy Project, a Veterans transition charity; CEO and Founder of The Event Group Canada’s leading live event production company; and CEO and Founder ToMarket, an affordable housing developer. Within David’s presentation, he offers an inside look to building the Homes For Heroes Foundation, along with “behind the curtain” stories from his 25 years of experience working with some of the world’s most sought-after performers such as Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah McLaughlin, Ringo Starr, VP Al Gore, Steven Harper, Jean Chretien, Russell Brand and so many more.

In creating the Homes For Heroes Foundation, David met with over 200 Veterans who were struggling with their transition to civilian life. As a result of this research, the Homes For Heroes Foundation was born. Homes For Heroes is a program designed by Veterans for Veterans with a focus on building tiny home villages, with full wrap-around social support services for our Canadian Veterans in need.

Currently, there are Veterans Villages operating in Edmonton and Calgary with villages in the development phase in Winnipeg and Kingston. The goal for Homes or Heroes is to build tiny home Veteran Villages in all major cities across Canada and end the issue of Veteran homelessness.

Within the work at the Homes For Heroes Foundation David has seen firsthand that cities across Canada are in desperate need of more affordable housing solutions. David’s newest venture is ToMarket, which is developing affordable housing solutions.
