UDI Policy Objectives

UDI’s policy work is framed by five pillars:

    • Respond to changing community housing needs
    • Ensure neighborhood planning allows for a diversity of homes
    • Increases the options available to British Columbians including purpose-built rental
    • Encourage more funding for transit expansion tied to housing delivery
    • Make it easier to get from home to work by building more homes where we have transit
    • Leverage senior government investments in transit by linking new transit funding to increased construction of apartments, rental units and other home choices
    • Taxes, fees and charges on new homes add to the cost of delivering new housing
    • A more balanced approach will improve affordability
    • Taxation fairness and predictability will encourage the construction of new homes
    • Improve affordability by speeding up the time it takes to approve new homes
    • Long delays in city hall mean increased costs for renters and home owners
    • Streamline and prioritize duplicative and conflicting regulations

    • Encourage new rental homes by stable and favourable regulatory environment for rental home builders and providers
    • Remove barriers from rental housing delivery
    • Support the redevelopment of existing rental homes through better managing tenant relocation
