British Columbia has been gripped by a housing affordability crisis that has deprived an entire generation of the ability to rent or own housing that fits their needs. Everyday, we talk to union members who are finding it increasingly difficult to afford life in in BC, and especially in urban centres like Metro Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna. Workers are struggling to find housing for their families, leading many to move further away from work and others to leave the province altogether. B.C. is losing experienced workers and economic productivity.

Solving this crisis requires bold action to tackle loose regulation in the housing market that has allowed speculators and banks to reap immense profits on the backs of British Columbians. With the help of experts in the field, the BCGEU has come up with a plan that tackles the affordability crisis by curbing speculation and making investments into housing and infrastructure that benefits all British Columbians.
