A home is an important part of the enviable quality of life many British Columbians seek. REALTORS® hear this every day from their clients all around the province.

On this website, the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) offers several suggestions to match housing supply with demand and to improve the ability of residents to buy and rent appropriate homes. These recommendations are grouped under five pillars that support market housing affordability.

During the 2017 BC Election, we encourage conversations among political parties, candidates and voters to better understand housing affordability—and the steps that can be taken to provide more options.
