Recent increases in the cost of housing are far outstripping increases in people's incomes. This is leading to a crisis in affordable housing throughout the Cowichan Region.
The CVRD Board is evaluating the benefits of establishing a regional financial contribution service in support of building affordable housing, and providing programs and services supporting more affordable housing.
The CVRD is seeking community input on this proposal. Community open houses are underway:
May 16 Kerry Park Recreation Centre (Mill Bay) 4pm – 7pm
May 17 Eagles Hall (Ladysmith) 4pm – 7pm
May 22 Island Savings Centre (Duncan) 4pm - 7pm
May 24 Cowichan Lake Sports Arena (Lake Cowichan) 4pm – 7pm
