Learn More about Affordable Housing

The Regional District of Nanaimo has an increasing shortage of affordable rental and owned housing for those with low to moderate incomes. The greatest impacts are felt by seniors, single parent families and youth. See the Regional Housing Needs Report for more information.

Understanding affordable housing may involve learning new terms and phrases. Visit the BC Housing Glossary for further information.
