  • Low vacancy rates, high housing costs, and high rates of homelessness belie Vancouver’s perennial ranking among the world’s most “livable” cities. Newly-elected mayor Kennedy Stewart—an associate professor in public policy at SFU—and a revamped city council have promised to make these problems their priority. But Vancouver isn’t alone: many other cities face a similar housing crisis. What are the underlying causes of this crisis? How can individuals navigate the difficult housing market? And, perhaps most importantly, is there anything we can do to fix it?

    This panel discussion, hosted by the Outreach Committee of UBC’s Green College, will bring together a varied array of community members with first-hand experience working to resolve Vancouver's precarious housing situation.

    It is open to the public free of charge, although we will be raising funds for the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre (www.dewc.ca), so please donate generously!
