MLA Town Hall – Housing and Affordability
October 18th – 7pm to 9pm (doors open at 6:30pm) Camosun College – Landsdowne Campus
Young Building 216 – Gibson Auditorium
Join Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak Bay Gordon Head and Leader of the B.C. Green Party, for an informative Town Hall on housing and affordability in Greater Victoria and throughout the province. Victoria has one of the lowest rental vacancy rates, coupled with rising home prices, which is making the region un-affordable for many, especially students and young professionals, and affecting economic development as new or expanding businesses find it difficult to attract employees.
Our panel of experts will discuss what can be done now to increase housing, and how we can prepare for the future. The discussion and presentations will be followed by an audience question and answer period.
Cairine Green – Community Housing Advocate
Alex McGowan – Chair, Alliance of BC Students
Kyle Kerr – Director, Victoria Real Estate Board
