With financial assistance from the Columbia Basin Trust and Teck Coal Ltd. (Teck) and support from the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, the Districts of Elkford and Sparwood have partnered together to commission the creation of a Housing Need and Demand Assessment for each community

The objectives of this study are to:
  • Identify current and emerging affordable housing needs including the housing needs of contract industrial workers;
  • Generate a greater understanding of local housing and associated issues (i.e., housing prices); and
  • Provide direction to the two Districts, the mining industry, and interested stakeholders for resolving housing related issues
