The four panelists comprise of two housing change makers, Minister Selina Robinson, Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing and Lance Jakubec, Housing Affordability Specialist, Canada Housing & Mortgage Corporation and two housing critics, Andy Yan, MCIP, Director of the SFU City Program and Dr. Paul Kershaw, Founder /Lead Researcher, Generation Squeeze with Thought Leader for the RAIC + MOV Built City Speaker Series, Gloria Venczel, MRAIC, MCIP, moderating.
Through “participatory planning” beginning in Vancouver in the 1970s, local residents have become urban design/planning savvy, helping shape the city into one of the most livable, pedestrian oriented, compact, complete, mixed use cities in North America. Build your knowledge, participate and help shape the local housing affordability solutions!
With the upcoming civic elections in BC on October 20, 2018, the dialogue promises to be vibrant.
