Rapidly surging house prices, historically low rental vacancies, long waitlists for social housing, and a massive homelessness epidemic—all these have led to many British Columbians feeling trapped in their current housing situation. In Make Housing Central, Kishone Roy, CEO of the B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association, tells the story of the affordable housing crisis in B.C. and proposes a realistic long-term plan to solve it.

Using personal stories, data, and a look inside the non-profit housing sector, Roy shows in vivid detail how British Columbians in many different situations are coping with the crisis.  This digestible read helps makes sense of the most pressing issue facing our province – and shows that inaction will be more costly than action.

Kishone Roy is CEO of the B.C. Non-Profit Housing Association; sits as Director of Encasa Financial, a mutual fund company owned by the affordable housing sector; and chairs the B.C. Rental Housing Coalition. A former political advisor, he has worked as a consultant and fundraiser in the non-profit and academic sectors.
