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.

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
