British Columbia is in the midst of a housing crisis. The provincial NDP government, having ran on a platform advocating for greater housing affordability and fairness, launched its comprehensive housing plan in 2018: “Homes for B.C. — A 30-point plan for housing affordability in British Columbia”. The plan outlines 30 points for addressing the housing crisis with tools, policies, multi-agency partnerships, and other approaches to be implemented over the following decade. This report developed a broad evaluation of the plan, including a methodological framework for evaluation, findings and constructive critiques for each point, and a report card that will allow the BCNPHA to reference the status of each point and determine how to follow-up on progress.
