Affordable Housing Developers Package Now Available

Kamloops, B.C. – The City of Kamloops, in partnership with the Kamloops Homelessness Action Plan and HomeFree, is pleased to present the Affordable Housing Developers Package.

This document is meant to provide a roadmap to affordable housing development for anyone interested in becoming involved in the affordable housing sector in Kamloops. The Developers Package brings together all of the current incentives and programs offered by all three levels of government — the City of Kamloops, BC Housing, and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) — for those seeking to build affordable housing.

The Package also includes contact information for non-profit housing providers in Kamloops, examples of recent affordable housing projects and a range of other resources of interest. The information is presented in quick-reference tables, with active links that will take the reader to the webpages and email addresses of key organizations and individuals.

The Package is available on the City of Kamloops website at: www.kamloops.ca/planning on the bottom right hand side, or is available in hard copy at the front desk at Development and Engineering Services at 105 Seymour Street.
