Existing Affordable Housing at Risk: Housing Co-op Sector Faces Looming Crisis as Federal Agreements Expire

5:00pm - 6:00pm

On the program, we discuss the looming crisis facing the housing co-operative sector as federal agreements expire

Between now and 2017, one quarter of housing co-operatives in BC will lose rent-geared-to income subsidies for low-income members as federal housing agreements end. Over 1500 households will face a crisis as their homes become unaffordable. On the program, we discuss this situation and how this affects the affordable housing landscape in Vancouver, across BC and Canada.
