City councils have several tools to support affordable housing in their communities, including dedicating land and reducing red tape to make it more efficient for non-profit and Indigenous housing providers and co-ops to protect and build affordable homes.
We’re asking every mayoral and council candidate across BC to show their support for affordable housing in their communities by signing the Make Housing Central housing pledge.
If you are a candidate and wish to sign the pledge, please fill out the form on the Make Housing Central website. One of our Make Housing Central campaign staff members will then contact you to verify your request and make it official.
The mission of the Make Housing Central partners – BC Non-Profit Housing Association (BCNPHA), the Aboriginal Housing Management Association and the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC (CHF BC) – is to strengthen and grow the community housing sector so all British Columbians have a safe, secure home they can afford.
