Residents of British Columbia will go to the polls on May 9, 2017 and we invite you to join us to “Make Housing Central” for all candidates in the upcoming provincial election.
There is no question that affordable housing is the single most important issue that all candidates, from all parties, should be addressing in this election campaign.
As part of our ongoing advocacy for our members, the BC Non-Profit Housing Association (BCNPHA) and the Co-operative Housing Federation of BC (CHFBC) have joined together under the umbrella of “Housing Central”. Our focus during the campaign will be to engage and educate candidates on the need for safe, secure and affordable housing and to support our members in connecting with the political parties and their candidates.
Our joint infoLINK-Scoop publication is now available and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at our advocacy work during the provincial election campaign. We published preliminary results of the Homeless Count in Metro Vancouver, released the Affordable Housing Plan and sent our customized election guides to candidates and our members to ensure housing affordability remains the key focus prior to voting day.
During the campaign, Housing Central will review and provide analysis on the party platform and policies related to affordable housing, co-operatives and non-profit housing. Additionally, we will review and report on any debates between the party leaders.
