Event Details

BC Builds is a new program delivered by BC Housing that speeds up the development of new homes for middle-income households by leveraging low-cost land, low-interest financing, and faster project timelines from concept to construction. BC Builds recently launched its Housing Development Opportunity platform to match available zoned land with developers and housing operators. The list of available sites is province-wide and growing quickly, and all are pre-zoned for multi-unit residential use, cutting down timelines and lowering costs associated with rezoning.

Join us for an in-depth session on the BC Builds initiative, where Lisa Helps will discuss pre-zoned land parcels and partnership prospects with the development industry. This is a great opportunity to learn about the BC Builds initiative and what this means for you
