Shaping solutions for the housing crisis

Shaping solutions for the housing crisis

As the epicenter of Canada’s housing crisis, Vancouver is grappling with unique and complex challenges. Numerous ways to address the situation have been proposed — some even at odds with each other. But how do we evaluate these varied approaches? Which one would be most effective? Do several solutions need to be applied simultaneously? Explore this multifaceted issue in breadth and depth at our panel discussion featuring experts who will share diverse ideas about solving this critical problem. Be a part of this conversation to help ensure housing stability and affordability is in our future.   

This event is presented by alumni UBC in partnership with the UBC Bachelor of Arts Urban Studies (the faculties of Arts and Applied Science), the Peter A. Allard School of Law, and Lambda Alpha Land Economics Society.
