Workforce Housing Strategy
In late 2022, Economic Development Cowichan launched the Workforce Housing Strategy project to come up with actions for increasing housing availability and affordability for the labour force.

Housing Needs Assessment
The CVRD has developed a Regional Housing Needs Assessment in partnership with its member municipalities and nine electoral areas. This housing needs assessment helps us understand what kinds of housing are most needed in our region’s communities now and in the future, which in turn helps inform the official community plan and development decisions.
The Cowichan Housing Association (CHA) plays a vital role in promoting the supply of secure, accessible and attainable housing throughout the region. In April 2019, CHA released a regional Attainable Housing Strategy, which assessed housing stock and identified options for innovative, adaptive and sustainable housing tailored to the unique needs of the Cowichan Region.
