We know that affordable housing on is everyone’s minds.
In 2018, the Coalition partnered with the Whistler Centre for Sustainability and BC Housing to provide an opportunity for residents to learn how diverse housing types can benefit our community, and to dialogue and provide opportunities for residents to express their concerns, suggest ideas, and ask questions about their housing needs.
“Ideas Wall’ posters were posted at the Courtenay Library, and Town of Comox Recreation Centre. Community members were encouraged to contribute their ideas about the types of housing they’ve lived in, what housing they currently live in, and housing needed in the future, and the response was enthusiastically high!
The Coalition also hosted 3 drop-in conversation events in Cumberland, Courtenay and Comox with interactive and guided stations for people to learn about different housing types, and to express their thoughts, concerns, suggestions, and to ask questions.
We want to thank all our community members who lent their voice to one (or all!) of these initiatives, and we want to thank the Whistler Centre for Sustainability and BC Housing for their support.
