Provide Feedback on Draft Recommendations of Mayor's Task Force on Housing Affordability

The Mayor’s Task Force on Housing Affordability invites the community to provide feedback on its draft recommendations on how the City of Victoria can increase capacity for and reduce barriers to affordable housing. Task Force members are seeking input on how the draft recommendations can be improved and what may be missing.

Email Your Feedback by June 15

You can view the draft recommendations and provide feedback by emailing housing@victoria.ca by end of day Monday, June 15, 2015.

Input from the community will help inform the Task Force draft recommendations that will be presented to City Council on July 16 for consideration.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Task Force workshop on June 1 at City Hall, which was co-hosted by the City of Victoria, the Urban Development Institute and the Together Against Poverty Society. The workshop was webcast live and is available for viewing online.

“Make Victoria More Affordable” is a key objective in the City’s new strategic plan for focus and investment over the next four years. The task force is chaired by Mayor Lisa Helps and includes Councillor Ben Isitt and Councillor Jeremy Loveday, and citizens and community leaders with experience in planning, architecture, real estate development, anti-poverty and non-profit housing.
