About this Event

The Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria (CSPC) is inviting local seniors, service providers and decision makers to review findings of our recent housing study UNDER PRESSURE: The rental housing experience of seniors living in James Bay, Victoria. This report is a senior-led, community-based research collaboration between James Bay New Horizons Society and the Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria. The discussion will explore topics such as how the current housing market is impacting seniors, the challenges seniors are facing, and opportunities for mitigating these challenges.

The CSPC has also invited a panellist of experts to discuss and have a conversation about the next steps in advocating to address the housing concerns identified by the senior residents in the community.
