Despite many recent announcements from the provincial government (over 100 housing-related news releases in the last year), BC continues to face a serious lack of affordable housing. We partnered with the Social Planning and Research Council of BC (SPARC) to assess the true state of social housing in the province. Our analysis of BC Housing's own service plans for the past five years reveals that only 280 net new units of social housing have been built since 2006. Find out more in Unpacking the Housing Numbers: How Much New Social Housing is BC Building? Or you can listen to Seth Klein talk about the report later this morning on the Bill Good Show (CKNW radio, 980 AM).
