Abundant housing needs abundant perspectives!
Join us for Sunday morning brunch/coffee and share your unique perspective on housing with people from all walks of life, including our featured guest speaker Kishone Roy!
Long before AHV was on the map, there were strong leaders like Kishone sounding the warning bells on housing in BC and beyond. Kishone is the author of Make Housing Central: British Columbia and the Affordable Housing Crisis, and has been a housing advocate for over a decade. Kishone was the CEO of the BC Non-Profit Housing Association and Chair of BC's Rental Housing Coalition, an organization that has helped raise billions of dollars from every level of government for social, nonprofit, and co-op housing.
Part of AHV’s mission is to be inclusive to all perspectives, so plan the future of housing with us! Opportunities exist to plan future events for housing with a focus on women, people of color, LGBTQ+ folx and more - there are no limits with your involvement in AHV.
Join us at Aperture Coffee on Main on Sunday, August 25th between 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Register on Eventbrite today so we can anticipate the number of attendees. See you soon!
You might already know that townhouses and apartments are illegal on most of Vancouver's residential land. But did you know that some neighbourhoods go further by effectively zoning for mansions that are many times more expensive than even the average multi-million-dollar Vancouver house?
On Saturday September 7, we hope you can join AHV members for our 3rd annual walking tour through West Point Grey. We'll tour the ultra-exclusionary Belmont Avenue and Drummond Drive neighbourhood, discuss the City of Vancouver policies that keep it out of reach for most, and wind up on Broadway or 10th for drinks, food, and discussion.
We'll meet at Blanca and Belmont at 1pm.
