North Cowichan is making a big step toward tackling the issue of affordable housing in the region.
The municipality is partnering with The Community Land Trust Foundation of BC to explore non-market affordable housing options in Chemainus and South End.
Mayor Jon Lefebure says it’s a pressing issue in our communities, and this partnership is a step in the right direction.
The Foundation will be doing a feasability study on what housing options they can create using the land provided by North Cowichan on Willow Street in Chemainus and Sherman Road in South End.
