Affordable Housing Needs Assessment

City of Quesnel
Quesnel, BC
Needs Assessment

Terra Housing, in partnership with Cooper Planning and Development Consultants, completed an Affordable Housing Needs Assessment for The City of Quesnel.  The report was commissioned in response to growing community concerns about the erosion of housing quality and affordability in the region. Terra prepared a clear and comprehensive Needs Assessment report which highlights demographics, income, and housing demand indicators, as well as the current and projected affordable housing inventory. Using BC Housing’s Housing Need and Demand Study template, the report concludes with a gap analysis and a set of recommendations. The Terra Team presented the findings at a well attended community consultation meeting at Quesnel City Hall and facilitated a discussion with key stakeholders. Feedback was collected at the event; local insights and qualitative statements were incorporated into the Final Report.
