Addressing housing across the Mount Waddington Region is a complicated and exciting challenge for local, regional, and first nations governments, non-profits, and health authorities. This strategy is a result of community engagement, recommends six key projects that can direct the resources of the Health Network and inform collaborative action to address housing deficits across Mount Waddington over the next three years.

2020 Mount Waddington Housing Needs Assessment

Community Collaboration

In 2018, the Province of British Columbia passed Bill 18 which requires each local government to collect data, analyze trends and prepare a report that identifies current and anticipated housing needs, for the purpose of considering these needs when creating policy and making decisions about development. Each local government has until April of 2022 to complete the initial housing needs report which must be updated every five years thereafter.

Through the housing needs report process, local governments will examine such things as:

  • Population trends (Who is living in our communities? How fast is the population increasing?)

  • Affordability (How much does it cost to live here?)

  • Future demand (Who will live here in the future, where will they live and in what types of housing will they live?)
