There is a severe housing crisis on Salt Spring now, and it’s impacting everyone in our community. The lack of affordable housing options is causing great harm to so many of our fellow residents, and without immediate relief, more families and individuals will leave the island. We risk losing so much of what we love about this special place.
Salt Springers are creative, we love to find solutions to big problems! Right now there are five affordable housing projects proposed, and other creative solutions to ease the crisis are possible.
But Islands Trust approvals processes and other bureaucratic hurdles combined with a small amount of local opposition are blocking these housing projects and other creative solutions from going ahead.
We need your voice to break the logjam!
Sign our petition demanding local governments work harder to provide real leadership on housing. If you sign up we will also share other ways of creating pressure and working for solutions over the summer and fall.
Together we can show that Salt Spring cares and can find solutions to the housing crisis. Please sign the petition today:
