The CVRD has developed a Regional Housing Needs Assessment in partnership with its member municipalities and nine electoral areas. This housing needs assessment will help us understand what kinds of housing are most needed in our region's communities now and in the future, which will help inform the official community plan and development decisions.
One report has been prepared for the region, one for each electoral area and one report for each of the four municipalities within the CVRD. Each will include the following sections:
Income and Economy
Affordability of New Development
The regional report provides additional information, such as a glossary of terms, project overview and context, a description of the housing spectrum, and a detailed description of the methodology.
