Affordable Victoria: Exploring Causes and Solutions for Housing Affordability

British Columbia is in the middle of a housing crisis, and Victoria has become the second least affordable city in Canada to live in. 

Since taking power, the BC NDP has implemented a number of major policy changes and promised to invest billions into affordable housing. The question many now have is, will these actions be enough? Housing prices continue to soar and many people across the political spectrum feel more action is needed. 

Join us on Monday May 7th as we explore these questions as well as potential solutions to the housing crisis in Victoria and B.C. 

This event will host a panel of experts and community members who will speak about different ways in which they are helping to tackle the affordability crisis.

Paul Finch - Moderator

Treasurer of the BCGEU and co-author of the Affordable BC report on housing affordability

Jared Melvin - Panelist

Kari Michaels - Panelist

Cheryl Thomas - Panelist
