Training Opportunity
Date & Time
Community Development Institute (CDI), UNBC

Housing demand in non-metropolitan areas of BC is impacted by a number of factors.

Join this webinar series to learn how housing demand will be impacted in the coming years. Each webinar will focus on a specific region of the province with detailed information about population trends, housing stock, and the housing market. A discussion will follow about the opportunities for the housing industry, the challenges of meeting this demand, and the strategies that can result in more housing on the ground. Based on research conducted by the Community Development Institute at the University of Northern British Columbia, this presentation provides data that can be used by developers, builders, planners, architects, and government in developing business models and strategic plans.
