Coquitlam City Council Approves Housing Affordability Strategy

Over the past several years, work has been under way by the City of Coquitlam to develop a new Housing Affordability Strategy (HAS) to guide the City’s efforts to address the growing inaffordability of housing, in particular the impact on low – moderate income households.

Council considered a draft HAS policy framework in September 2014, and a public consultation process on the framework was carried out from October 2014 to May 2015. The HAS – based on this framework – was approved by Council at its regular meeting on December 7, 2015.

In a broad sense the HAS focuses the City’s response to local housing affordability issues, but also recognizes there are a limited local government mandate and resources to address housing affordability without partnerships and senior government funding.
