Housing Needs Report

In 2019, the Province passed legislation requiring local governments to collect and analyze population and housing-related data to identify current and future housing needs and reflect those needs in a Housing Needs Report.

The two parts of creating this report involve summarizing core data from the Province and getting input from the community.

In January, the City launched a Housing Needs Survey and received 400 responses. The results can be found here

All of the information collected is being used to help the City better understand local housing needs and experiences.

Quote

Mayor Darryl Walker

“There are very few things as important to people and to families as their homes. In White Rock, we want to hear your stories. We want to understand your housing needs and if they are being met. I encourage everyone who is a renter in White Rock, or who would like to be a renter in White Rock, to participate in this online forum.”
