Housing Needs Report Program

Applications are currently being accepted for this program.

The Housing Needs Reports program supports local governments in undertaking housing needs reports in order to meet the provincial requirements. The reports will strengthen the ability of local governments to understand what kinds of housing are most needed in their communities, and help inform local plans, policies, and development decisions. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing has confirmed $5 million over three years for this program.

The program is structured to reflect the planning areas for which local governments are required to complete housing needs reports: municipalities, electoral areas and local trust areas (within the Islands Trust). Funding is scaled based on the net population of the planning area.
