Early next year, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of BC (CHBA BC) will hold its second Housing Affordability Symposium. The first, held in November 2010, resulted in the Action Plan to Addressing Housing Affordability in BC, which details activities to be undertaken by industry and all levels of government.
In preparation for the 2012 symposium, attendees are asked to complete scorecards, so progress toward improved affordability can be tracked in a meaningful way.
The 2012 event will provide issue-specific workshops sharing ideas to balance housing costs and community needs. This event will revisit the action plan, review collective scorecard results and provide additional roundtable discussions between various government leaders, industry professionals and other related stakeholders to result in a revised action plan.
As a planning partner for this event, BCREA encourages organizations and individuals connected to the housing sector and community development to attend the symposium to take part in this exciting opportunity for BC’s future.
