Housing Affordability Strategy (HAS)

On December 7, 2015 City of Coquitlam Council endorsed a new Housing Affordability Strategy (HAS or the Strategy). The HAS replaces the 2007 Affordable Housing Strategy (AHS).

Through the Housing Affordability Strategy, Coquitlam's goal is to work with partners from the non-profit, private and public sectors to ensure that a wide variety of housing types, sizes, tenures and prices can be offered in Coquitlam in the years to come.

The Strategy also recognizes that local government's mandate and resources to address housing affordability are limited without partnerships and funding from other levels of government.

The HAS provides a vision, objectives, policy directions and specific actions to address housing affordability.
