Location: Old Mill Inn, Toronto

FRPO is pleased to host the 7th annual Women in Rental Housing Luncheon on Thursday, August 22nd sponsored by Absolute Ventilation. This event will feature two speakers including Francine Moore of Homestead Land Holdings and Emily O’Brien of Cons and Kernels. 


Francine Moore – President of Homestead Land Holdings

Francine is the President of Homestead Land Holdings Limited, one of the largest privately-owned multi-family residential real estate company in Canada. Francine began her career with Homestead as Chief Financial Officer and assumed the role of President in 2001, providing leadership to over 875 associates and Homestead’s business activities. Prior to Homestead, Francine was the Controller of a recycled boxboard manufacturing facility and was an assurance Manager at KPMG.

Francine is very active in her community and has served on several boards including REALPAC (the Real Property Association of Canada), Homestead Land Holdings Limited, and Homestead South LLC.  She is currently a member of the Kingston Mayor’s Task Force on Housing and previously served on the audit committee of Kingston General Hospital. Francine is a designated Chartered Accountant, and graduate of York University’s Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) program.

In her spare time, Francine enjoys travelling and cottaging with her family, including her two young grandchildren.

Emily O’Brien – Founder of Cons and Kernels Popcorn Company

After battling drug and alcohol addiction which ultimately landed Emily in prison, she was spurred to create change. Her rejection of the status quo and the stigma associated with people that go through the prison system led her to becoming an entrepreneur – while still in a jail cell. Emily now employs people with criminal records while shedding light on the root causes of crime and gaps in the current justice system.  After losing everything, Emily began her journey towards authenticity, forgiveness while becoming a pro social business owner and leader in her community.  

 Buffet lunch is included in the cost of registration. We suggest registering early as this event will sell out quickly.
