With the 2017 budget update, the provincial government has demonstrated that previous commitments to affordable housing and providing additional support to low-income households stand strong.
So much so that the government has announced that the combined 3,700 new affordable units and 6,700 currently in the pipeline, will bring British Columbia to more than 10,000 new affordable units available over the next several years.
Assistance for low-income does not just stop at providing a roof over people’s heads. The budget also includes support services such as an immediate $100 increase for people on income assistance.
