Regional Housing Needs Assessment Report
In partnership with the Cowichan Valley Regional District and other member municipalities (Town of Lake Cowichan, Municipality of North Cowichan and Town of Ladysmith), the City of Duncan contributed to the development of a Regional Housing Needs Assessment, through support from the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) Housing Needs Reports funding program.
The regional and sub-regional reports shed light on topics including key housing types and gaps, anticipated number of housing units and types, and the percentage of households in core to extreme core housing need. The report is comprised of six sections that identify current and predicted housing needs in the City of Duncan, these sections are:
- Demographic Profile
- Income and Economy
- Housing Profile
- Housing Needs
- Affordability of New Development
The findings of the Housing Needs Assessment will contribute to the City’s Official Community Plan update process and other housing-related policy development.
