The June issue of FOCUS Magazine features a great article by Simon Nattrass on the challenges of finding affordable rental housing in the City of Victoria and the stress that those who struggle with unaffordable housing are forced to endure.  The article also highlights the many hurdles faced when it comes to creating new affordable housing options and the challenge of getting politicians to admit that middle-income households in BC are facing an affordability crisis. 

“It’s estimated that of the nearly 25,000 renters within the City of Victoria, almost half deal with the same struggle and uncertainty that goes along with living in lower-cost rental housing.”

Thank you to the Tenant Resource & Advisory Centre for submitting this article.
