Alberni Valley Housing Needs Report

The City of Port Alberni and ACRD are working together, with a consultant (RFT Planning), to develop Housing Needs Reports (HNRs) for the City and the four Alberni Valley Electoral Areas (EAs) (Beaufort, Sproat Lake, Beaver Creek, and Cherry Creek), and we need your input!
City of Port Alberni and Alberni Valley EA residents, please TAKE THE ALBERNI VALLEY HOUSING NEEDS SURVEY for a chance to win one of four $50 gift cards to a local business of your choice.

The survey is available until November 29, 2020, and is part of a housing needs assessment being completed in the Alberni Valley, which looks at local demographics, economics, housing stock, and other factors around housing needs. The results will inform future City and ACRD housing policies.
Although the UBCM grants require the City and ACRD to develop separate final HNRs, we are collaborating on aspects of public and stakeholder engagement for these HNR projects, as:
  • The City of Port Alberni is the centre for many community agencies and service providers in the Alberni Valley; and
  • Information sharing will be key in identifying existing and projected gaps in housing supply across the Alberni Valley.
Upcoming Alberni Valley HNR work will include community engagement through stakeholder questionnaires and/or community interviews, in conjunction with the City.

Please contact the the ACRD Planning Department at 250-720-2700 or if you would like to be involved, or have any questions or comments.
