MNBC Releases First Housing Needs Assessment Report

Métis Nation British Columbia (MNBC) aims to reduce Métis core housing need in British Columbia (BC) by 50% over five years. To measure progress towards this goal, MNBC undertook a baseline housing needs assessment to benchmark the proportion of Métis in BC living in core housing needs in 2021.

Our findings indicate that Métis households in BC live in core housing needs at higher rates (17%) than the overall BC population (15%). More specifically, Métis households live in core housing need at the highest rates in Region 2 (Lower Mainland: 25%), Region 1 (Vancouver Island & Powell River: 17%), and Region 3 (Thompson & Okanagan: 15%).

This report presents the results of this baseline housing needs assessment.
