Kelowna to host affordable housing research discussion

A province-wide initiative to address affordable housing issues in B.C. comes to Kelowna for a full day of public discussion Feb. 18, 10 a,.m. to 3 p.m., at UBCO’s University Centre ballroom (UNC 200).

The B.C. Affordable Housing Research and Action Roundtable scheduled for Kelowna is the third of three sessions held around the province over the past year. Previous roundtables where held in Victoria last February and Vancouver in December.

“After meetings in Victoria and Vancouver, it was a good idea to bring this important event to the Interior of B.C. and particularly to the Okanagan Valley,” said Carlos Teixeira, associate professor of geography at UBC Okanagan and one of the organizers of the event.

The morning features a panel discussion with a keynote presentation by Michael Shapcott, national housing and homelessness leader and director of Affordable Housing and Innovation for the Wellesley Institute. The afternoon will include roundtable discussions.
