Salt Spring Island has a severe housing crisis that is making it very difficult for many members of our community to continue to live in this special place. Have you been homeless despite having the money to rent? Have you been forced to leave the island because you can’t find a home? Is your business or farm struggling to keep great staff? Do you live in sub-standard housing at high costs and don’t want to leave because there are no other options?
The Salt Spring Housing Action Committee (SHAC) is a new network of concerned citizens, farmers, business owners, and affordable housing proponents working to find solutions to the crisis.
Elected officials have said they want to hear stories from Salt Springers on how the affordability crisis is affecting them.
