Metro Vancouver’s many attributes make it a highly desirable place to live and
invest. Unfortunately, that makes housing, whether rental or ownership,
unaffordable for many of the region’s citizens. The need to think outside the
box about lower-cost residential options has become an urgent priority. Renowned
international housing expert Dr. Avi Friedman will look at what’s making housing
unaffordable in Metro Vancouver — as well as the direct and indirect
contributions that affordable housing makes to communities. He will describe
potential housing strategies, including examples of local and international
projects, that offer innovative affordable housing solutions for this region.
