Make Housing Central

British Columbia and the Affordable Housing Crisis
By Kishone Roy

A realistic plan to solve BC’s affordable housing crisis

Rapidly surging house prices, historically low rental vacancies, long waitlists for social housing, and a massive homelessness epidemic-all these have led to many British Columbians feeling trapped in their current housing situation. In Make Housing Central, Kishone Roy, former CEO of BC Non-Profit Housing Association, tells the story of the affordable housing crisis in BC and proposes a realistic long-term plan to solve it.

Using personal stories, data, and a look inside the non-profit housing sector, Roy shows in vivid detail how British Columbians in many different situations are coping with the ciris. This digestible read helps make sense of the most pressing issue facing our province-and shows that inaction will be more costly than action.
