North Shore Balanced Housing Lab

The Balanced Housing Lab is an innovative partnership between the City of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver, Squamish Nation, senior levels of government, and other stakeholders. The HRC is part of the Steering Committee and Project Working Group that is going to support this initiative, as they face the challenge of co-creating diverse housing solutions that make it possible for middle-income earners at different stages of life to live and work in the City of North Vancouver, Squamish Nation, and the District of West Vancouver. Moving forward, the Balanced Housing Lab will focus around three main areas: Reimagining the Housing Approval Process, Mobilizing Resources & Capacity through Indigenous & Non-Indigenous Partnerships, and Flexible Delivery Model for Affordable Living.
