Housing Policy Fundamentals (CITY102)

  • This event has passed.

Housing policy in Metro Vancouver can be a maze of complicated terminologies and confusing characteristics, face a vacuum of empirical data, and become prone to misunderstanding and misinformation. Amongst the most contentious have been debates on what constitutes “affordable housing,” who should be responsible, and how and where to make affordable housing happen.

In this course, you will learn about the foundational concepts and debates of housing Metro Vancouver.

The course will lay the foundation for explaining the local and regional housing landscape, survey the strengths and weaknesses of different housing policy responses and, in particular, the affordability crisis. It will look specifically at some of the innovative policy-making coming out of BC.

This four-evening course introductory course will transform the way you view housing and offer new opportunities to understand the affordable housing crisis. It will be of interest to community leaders, students of urban issues, housing providers, land use planners and related professionals, and anyone interested in elevating the discourse surrounding this complex problem.

Jan 13, Jan 20, Jan 27 and Feb 3, from 6:30pm to 8:25pm
