Coalition calls for an affordable housing plan for BC

On April 10, 2017, the BC Rental Housing Coalition – which includes the BC Society of Transition Houses, a First Call member – released its Affordable Housing Plan for BC.

This 10-year plan proposes specific and costed measures that can be implemented immediately to increase rental housing supply, close the affordability gap and help address homelessness in BC.

Recommendations include reducing poverty and providing income supports to renters and the homeless through the development of a poverty reduction strategy and alignment of housing with other policy areas such as health, justice and child welfare, among other strategies.
