Small is Beautiful: Building affordable housing in small and rural Canadian communities

November 25, 2020 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | Elevation
SPONSORED BY: Real Estate Foundation of BC Affordable housing is just as vital and attainable in small and rural communities as it is in urban centres. Planners make it happen by adapting to local contexts, embracing different tools, and elevating community strengths rather than focusing on deficits. This session will highlight promising practices from across British Columbia, including exciting stories of policy design, community-led housing initiatives, and affordable housing development from towns and Indigenous communities of 30,000 people or less. We will show how housing is built in small and rural places, from need, to plan, to proposal, to ribbon cutting. We will also invite the audience to share their affordable housing stories, and encourage collective learning with our colleagues from across the country.
