RDNO Housing Needs Assessment 

Housing affordability and availability is one of the key challenges facing North Okanagan Communities. In May 2019 the Board of Directors of the RDNO unanimously agreed to apply for funding from UBCM to undertake the development of a Regional Housing Needs Assessment - acknowledging that no single community can address the full range of affordable housing needs of the region. This collaborative approach has set the stage for a comprehensive review which will enable each community and the region as a whole to respond to local housing needs.
