Affordable housing and Vancouver’s EcoDensity program

CCPA submitted a brief to Vancouver City Council about the city’s EcoDensity Initiative, by myself and co-authors, Erick Villagomez, Penny Gurstein, David Eby and Elvin Wyly. We have been working on a bigger climate justice paper looking at affordable housing and EcoDensity, but a short window came up for written submissions on the revised and updated EcoDensity Charter, so we decided to take advantage based on our work to date. The submission provides a review of recent affordability trends, critiques the EcoDensity approach to affordability, and outlines some alternatives.
