WHEREAS the lack of appropriate affordable housing, particularly in small rural BC communities makes it difficult for seniors and those with special needs to age in place;
AND WHEREAS access to safe, affordable and appropriate housing helps to create vibrant, sustainable communities:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NCLGA and UBCM urge the Provincial and Federal Governments to work with community partners to develop solutions to the lack of seniors’ housing and to provide the necessary long-term funding to support the construction of a full range of affordable seniors’ housing choices across British Columbia.
