The Government of British Columbia has recently formed HousingHub, a division of BC Housing. HousingHub is aimed at bringing local governments, indigenous partners, the non-profit sector and developers together to form innovative partnerships to introduce affordable homes throughout British Columbia. The focus of this new office will be on developing homes, both for rent and purchase, for people with average incomes between $50,000 and $100,000.
The first partnership between HousingHub and the British Columbia Conference of the United Church of Canada, is aimed at developing over 400 new housing units at sites in Coquitlam, Nanaimo, Richmond and Vancouver.
“Building affordable homes for middle-income people is key to tackling the housing crisis, and we have to work together to get it done,” said Premier John Horgan. “That’s why we’ve created the HousingHub — to bring people and organizations together to build the homes people need, quickly.”
The HousingHub will take an active role in finding partners to build new, affordable market-rental housing and owner-purchased housing, giving renters and prospective new homeowners the benefits of long-term stable and affordable housing.
