Creating Market and Non-Market Affordable Housing - Toolkit for BC Municipalities


The purpose of this Toolkit is to give local government staff and decision-makers more detailed knowledge about eight tools that deliver market and non-market affordable housing so they are better equipped to decide which approaches suit their community and to develop an affordable housing program. Local governments have the legislative authority to work with developers to use all of these tools to create affordable housing.

This Toolkit provides the support and suggestions on how to craft an effective affordable housing program.
