Similar to many communities in BC, Kamloops is experiencing housing pressures due to changing demographics and market trends. To better understand the current housing climate and identify future housing needs, the City of Kamloops is preparing a comprehensive Housing Needs Assessment.

This assessment will include a review of the existing housing supply in Kamloops across the entire housing continuum, help us learn where gaps or barriers may exist, and identify future housing needs. It will provide important information and data to help us better address and prioritize future housing needs for all residents.

In addition to reviewing existing data sources, the City will be listening to and gathering input from non-profit housing providers, housing and homelessness service providers, local developers and private landlords, persons with lived experience of homelessness, and city residents. This will be done in person, and through this website. Please subscribe to the project to stay informed on opportunities to share your voice.
