Thinking Outside the Box about Affordable Housing

The SFU Centre for Dialogue, in collaboration with the Urban Development InstituteCity of VancouverSocial Planning and Research Council of BC,BC Non-Profit Housing Association and other partners, invites you to a public lecture on affordable housing.

Metro Vancouver’s many attributes make it a highly desirable place to live and invest. Unfortunately, that makes housing, whether rental or ownership, unaffordable for many of the region’s citizens. The need to think outside the box about lower-cost residential options has become an urgent priority. Renowned international housing expert Dr. Avi Friedman will look at what’s making housing unaffordable in Metro Vancouver — as well as the direct and indirect contributions that affordable housing makes to communities. He will describe potential housing strategies, including examples of local and international projects, that offer innovative affordable housing solutions for this region.
