Affordable Housing Policy

Affordable Housing is an issue facing governments of all levels. Many communities around the Province are or have developed a range of strategies and their experiences are things that we can learn from. Within the Comox Valley, it is an issue involving all local governments, not just the City. For persons with low or moderate incomes, finding housing within their financial means has become increasingly difficult. Housing remains a cornerstone of a strong community providing stability and well-being for the individual which ultimately affects the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the City.

Providing a range of housing opportunities and support services will contribute to the overall social well-being of a community.

The City of Courtenay's Affordable Housing Policy outlines strategies to support funding and programs for low income, non-market and low end market housing for people in need.
