Housing Needs Report

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We want to hear from you about the housing needs and gaps in each community.

The RDKB is in the process of completing a housing needs assessment that will help us better understand our current and future housing needs. The resulting Housing Needs Report will be used as a foundation for planning and decision-making for at least the next five years. The final report will address both the RDKB's region-wide context, as well as contain distinct individual sections for each member municipality and electoral area.

A key part of the assessment process involves hearing from community members (that’s you!) and we need your help. In light of the required social distancing in order to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are asking you to engage with us virtually.

Help us learn more by filling out the Survey, placing pins to Map the Need and Tell Your Housing Story below. This is your opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences about housing in your community.

Complete the survey and be entered into a draw for recreation passes including:

  • 10 chances to win a pickleball entry level kit with 2 paddles and 2 balls
  • 5 chances to win 1-hour ice rental at the Fruitvale Arena
  • 5 chances to win a family punch pass with 10 admissions to the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre

Should you require assistance to complete the survey, we are happy to fill it out on your behalf over the phone. Contact Kevin from CitySpaces Consulting at kgreen@cityspaces.ca for assistance and we will follow up with a phone call if necessary.

Thank you for taking part!
