BCNPHA, the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC and the Aboriginal Housing Management Association jointly launched a campaign to support action on affordable housing. The campaign included a new online public portal providing critical housing needs information for every community across the province. It also included a housing pledge, committing candidates to address crucial affordable housing needs in their communities.
BCNPHA together with the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC and the Aboriginal Housing Management Association, have joined the Vote Housing campaign, a national, non-partisan effort to end homelessness and make housing safe and affordable across the country. The campaign is mobilizing Canadians to ensure all political parties leave behind decades of public policy choices that have entrenched homelessness and housing need in our communities – and make bold new commitments to affordable housing.
British Columbians elected their new provincial government on October 24th, 2020. There was no question that affordable housing and homelessness were amongst the top issues affecting voters. Building on the success of our Rental Housing Index, we compiled easy to navigate rental affordability data in each of B.C.’s 87 ridings to help voters evaluate the affordability situation in their local riding.
