The Housing Needs Report is complete and ready to be shared.

Thank you for all your contributions! They were essential to the development of this report.

You can find the RDKB's Housing Needs Report on the right hand side of this page.


The Report provides an overview of the regional housing needs followed by a separate section for each municipality and electoral area outlining their specific housing needs. The report was based upon the statistical information for all communities alongside of the input from hundreds of participants.

There is a separate appendices document that outlines the data collected and used to inform the report and to meet legislated requirements.

An Engagement Summary report has also been included alongside the Housing Needs Report, showing the outreach done to provide the story behind the data.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Please Note: The online survey closed on August 16th, 2020. 

    The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (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. 

    Please answer the following questions to help us understand your experiences with housing in the region and in your community.

    We expect the survey will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete and all responses are confidential.

    At the end of the survey you will have the opportunity to leave your contact information and be entered in a draw for one of:

    • 10 chances to win a pickleball entry level kit
    • 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

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts! Please share the survey with your friends and neighbours!
