City of Victoria taking action on housing

The City of Victoria is taking steps to boost a range of lower-cost housing options.

The action plan, supported by city council, looks to protect existing rental units and expand subsidized housing and low-cost ownership models.

The plan also called for better monitoring of the city's housing stock, and the need by target populations such as seniors.

Council approved $35,000 to implement the plan, starting in 2013 with an assessment of areas where rental housing may be at risk.
