Good News, Bad News

Did you know that Vancouver is 1 of the fastest growing tech hubs in North America along with Montreal & Toronto?  In fact, the number of tech workers has grown more than 65% in the last 5 years.  That's the good news.

The bad news is with that kind of growth, where does everyone live?  Finding housing in Vancouver, whether to buy or rent is a big challenge.  We want to attract good paying jobs that will in turn help our economy but without housing, we often lose out.

For the past few years I've worked with physicians who want to move here for great jobs but were unable to find any affordable housing & had to turn down job opportunities.

Vancouver needs to address this with at least increasing the number & faster permitting of new rental buildings to accomodate our growth.
