The B.C. Chamber of Commerce is going forward with three new policies with the hopes of finding an answer to the housing affordability crisis.
Kim Darwin, President of Sechelt chamber of Commerce says they brought forward one of the policies, which was accepted recently at the AGM in Kelowna…
The policy calls for the B.C. government to conduct a full provincial study to collect and analyze citizenship and residency data on all real estate and for the government to publish the results.
Darwin says the housing affordability crisis has spread from Vancouver and communities like the Sunshine Coast are facing similar problems.
She says employers are having a hard time finding employees, while employees can’t find affordable to live, so they’re choosing to live somewhere else.
