In 2019, the Province of British Columbia introduced changes to Local Government Act, Part 14, Division 22, requiring municipalities and regional districts to complete a five-year housing needs assessment by April 2022, and every five years thereafter.

The qathet Regional District, the City of Powell River and the Tla’amin Nation have partnered to complete this assessment with funding from UBCM. The Project Partners believe that housing is an issue in their communities and that housing issues cross jurisdictional boundaries and as such, housing is a regional issue.

This report will help the local and provincial government to better understand and respond to housing needs in communities throughout British Columbia and incorporate these into local plans and policies.
