Coquitlam is set to be home to the province’s first HousingHub as the provincial government looks to partner to build 75 housing units in the community.
“Building affordable homes for middle-income people is key to tackling the housing crisis, and we have to work together to get it done,” said B.C. Premier John Horgan.
“We are taking the expertise from BC Housing and now bringing the resources as well. We will get the projects started.”
The HousingHub was a key component of the NDP government’s 30 point housing plan that was unveiled in February. It aims to bring local governments, developers and the non-profit sector together to build housing.
