Our support for housing supply
We're scaling up supply-side wins, with a focus on purpose-built rental. Does the community need to know about YOUR project?

Gen Squeeze provides support through letter-writing campaigns, attending open houses, and speaking at municipal public hearings — which might explain why we received BCNPHA’s Affordable Housing Champion award for 2017!

Gen Squeeze has supported more than 20 new housing projects and policies facing opposition recently — nearly all of which passed! Over the past year and a half we have had:
