dc.description.abstractThis study is in-depth research into the affordable housing crisis in British Columbia, specific to the affordable rental and subsidized housing sector. The scope of research is divided into three main elements; understanding the value paradigm of the housing sector, fostering an integrated system’s approach in the existing system, and enhancing the economic sustainability within the affordable housing sector. This study provides insight into the historical trajectory of the housing system in Canada and, more specifically British Columbia, and delves into the existing policies, action plans, and programs at a different level of governance from Federal, Provincial to Municipal to capture a holistic picture of affordable rental and subsidized housing landscape in British Columbia. At the municipal level, the City of Nanaimo is chosen to understand the existing policies, plans, and programs to mitigate the affordable housing crisis. The literature review and data collection inform the patterns, gaps, and opportunities within the three elements of the study to propose recommendations for it.en_US
