Affordable Housing

In 2019, Community Council released the Affordable Housing Study Report. Over three years later, we completed the advocacy phase for the study recommendations. At the Full Circle Celebration on March 23, 2023, the Implementation Task Force Report was released and highlights from the advocacy process were shared.

The Affordable Housing study sought to answer the question, "How can we meet the need for safe and affordable housing in our region?"

Affordable housing is when housing costs – rent or mortgage, and utilities – do not exceed 30% of household income. Based on this definition, affordable housing includes housing for moderate-income households whose wages simply have not kept up with housing costs, and “low-income housing” or “subsidized housing”, which refer to units that target households below a certain income level.
