Housing is a human right

A fireside chat with BC housing experts

Register now

Housing has been the #1 issue in BC for years. We’re in a crisis and it’s getting worse. It affects nearly everyone in some way, from young families and students, to professionals and seniors. Equity-seeking groups, who are already marginalized in our communities, are especially impacted by the housing crisis.

So how do we navigate our way out? Do we need big, bold solutions or should we take a more careful, incremental approach? How is the housing crisis tied to wealth inequality; equity, inclusion and diversity; and climate change?

Join our MLAs for a fireside chat with some of BC’s non-partisan housing experts. Learn about what’s really going on with the housing crisis and what options are available.
