Affordable Housing & Homelessness

A continuing challenge

Communities in the FVRD are facing increasing pressures relating to housing affordability, homelessness and other social issues. Over the past few years, housing costs have increased substantially, and the number of people at risk of homelessness is increasing. Local governments, especially small and medium-sized communities do not have the expertise, resources or authority to adequately address these issues.

The issues surrounding affordable housing and homelessness are complex and will require action on the part of all levels of government to address. The region depends on building partnerships with other agencies, governments and non-profits to achieve the challenges.
