New Brunswick is facing a housing supply and demand issue, and we recognize that affordable housing is a challenge for many.
We will be monitoring and supporting all housing initiatives across government to ensure alignment and successful and timely completion of initiatives.
- Overseeing the assessment and reporting of progress, gaps, and challenges across the housing spectrum
- Identifying new opportunities where our efforts should be prioritized
- Tracking and aligning with housing efforts of other levels of Government and the not-for profit sector
We must ensure that the decisions we make not only help tenants with rising costs but also address low vacancy rates in our province.
There are many individual pieces to housing that make up the housing spectrum and we will be working with all levels of government, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, advocacy groups and organizations to examine what is needed to improve each piece and bring a unified approach to addressing affordable housing.
