Having a safe and affordable place to call home is something every Canadian deserves. Yet finding affordable housing can be a challenge for many. The Governments of Canada and British Columbia continue to deliver on their commitment to make housing that is safe, suitable and well-maintained become more affordable and within reach for Canadians. On September 4, 2019, Minister Bill Morneau, Minister Carole James and Minister Selina Robinson announced the members of the Expert Panel on the Future of Housing Supply and Affordability. The panel will be chaired by Joy MacPhail. Ms. MacPhail is currently the Chair of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. The Expert Panel will examine housing trends for rental and homeownership, exploring options to allow British Columbians to have further access to housing that they need and can afford. The Expert Panel members are leaders and specialists in a range of fields with relevant expertise who will consult with stakeholders to identify and evaluate measures that could build on recent investments and initiatives to increase the supply of housing in British Columbia to meet demand. The panelists’ consultations and analysis will be supported by the Government through a secretariat established by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, led by Evan Siddall as Executive Secretary. The Expert Panel will complete their work and provide a report to the Ministers of Finance of British Columbia and Canada by the end of 2020.
The questionnaire is open until June 26, 2020 at 4pm (PST).
