The annual BC Non-Profit Housing Association Housing Central conference in late November focused on the challenges seniors face accessing affordable housing. The Seniors Advocate moderated a panel of seniors with lived experience of homelessness and precarious housing situations. The panel also discussed the Province’s commitment to a stand-alone Ministry of Housing which was announced at the conference by Premier Eby. A housing minister will be appointed when a new cabinet is named on Dec. 7.
