BC Housing welcomes the opportunity to work with individuals and organizations to create affordable housing solutions.
How will the HousingHub help build new affordable housing in BC?
The HousingHub will actively seek and facilitate new opportunities and partnerships with traditional and non-traditional partners who have land that can be the foundation to create new affordable homes.
By leveraging the expertise of BC Housing staff, the office will provide a centre for community partners and private industry to collaborate on developing new construction or redeveloping existing sites for affordable housing purposes.
Increasing the Housing Supply
The HousingHub is designed to purposefully seek partnerships with private and non-profit sectors to work with all levels of government to achieve the following outcomes:
- Create new affordable rental supply
- Support individuals and families in moving out of rental units and into affordable homeownership
Housing for households with middle incomes – the average annual income qualifying for units underway is under $99,000 per year.
Affordable rental housing at or below market rate, affordable homeownership.
Non-profits and private developers, faith groups, property owners, federal and local governments, and Indigenous partners.
