There needs to be affordable housing across the entire housing spectrum.
We will move forward with the new rental-only zone in new NCP’s as part of an affordable housing strategy. We will work to ensure that we have sufficient rental housing built to help keep rent affordable as we grow.
The city has also implemented an affordable housing DCC for new development that will help fund projects with senior levels of government.
Other strategies will include fast-tracked approvals for purpose built rental units and working with BC Housing to deliver provincially funded projects in the city.
