This is a partnership project with:
Affordable Housing Benefits Everyone!
Affordable housing is on everyone’s mind. People from all walks of life are being affected by the housing crunch.
In May 2019 the Health Network partnered with Campbell River and District Coalition to End Homelessness to engage residents in Campbell River by providing information, resources and examples of affordable housing, and opportunities for conversations to discuss hopes, dreams and concerns.
The four major findings from the engagements were that Campbell River residents want:
More affordable housing to rent and to own
Greater diversity in housing types, such as townhouses, tiny homes, and apartments
Better regulation to encourage affordable and diverse housing
More infill and density with access to transport networks and amenities
