We just dug out our favourite winter recipes from grandma’s stash, we're mulling our favourite holiday drinks, and we've written out our rental housing wish list to share with you...
Let's eat, drink, and dig into our masterplan to get more rental housing in Burnaby!
- When: Wednesday, Dec. 5th from 6-9 p.m.
- Where: CMPNY Burnaby @ 201 - 4501 Kingsway, Burnaby, B.C. V5H 0E5 (Google map)
- Why: Burnaby is our new key focus for securing more rental housing in Metro Van, and we want you involved in this fresh and exciting chapter of our work! (Already sold? Scroll to the very bottom to sign up!) ⬇️
- From 6-7 we'll eat, drink, and mingle!
- From 7-8 we'll give you the scoop on our game plan for Burnaby, and sign some snappy holiday cards for Burnaby city council
- From 8-9 more eating and drinking will probably be in order 😉
Have kids? They're welcome too! While we recognize this might be past some bedtimes, we'll have some colouring and fun activities on hand!
We built in a lot of socializing buffer room for this event. If you can only swing by for a little bit, just pop in and we'll give you the nutshell update one-on-one!
Over the next several months, we’ll be pursuing policy and project victories for our #WeRent campaign with a special focus on Burnaby. We'll be pursuing high level policy by getting the ball rolling on purpose-built rental incentives, and working on the ground supporting individual projects such as the 1,000 + new rental homes proposed at Lougheed Village (which will likely be going to public hearing late this year, or in the new year!).
- It’s the third most critical city on the Canadian Rental Housing Index
- It was recently named the third most expensive rental market in the nation
- Data from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's annual rental market report shows Burnaby lost over 700 units of rental housing between 2010 and 2017
- The City of Burnaby has issued building permits for 4,699 units of housing this year. Just 0.49% of that has been purpose-built rental.
- The rental vacancy rate is near zero
- While most other municipalities have PBR incentive policies, Burnaby does not
- New mayor, new council, new possibilities!
If appies & desserts, holiday drinks, good company, and the opportunity to have your personal message hand delivered to Burnaby's new mayor and council sounds like a Wednesday evening well-spent, you'll want to RSVP now! Scroll down ⬇️
