Description

Common Energy UBC's Emerging Green Builders team and the BC Tiny House Collective are excited to bring you “Vancouver's Housing Crisis: Redefining "Home"”. Join us for a screening of the striking documentary "Vancouver: No Fixed Address" and a panel of esteemed speakers, for a conversation about one of the most pressing issues Vancouver is facing today: the crisis of housing affordability.

“Vancouver: No Fixed Address” is a highly acclaimed film by local director Charles Wilkinson, exploring the struggles of living in one of the top five cities in the world. From ideas about home and belonging to investigating the issues of foreign investment and student rent, the film presents a multi-faceted view of the difficulty of home ownership in our city. Through documenting the experiences of Vancouver residents, from 3rd-generation Canadians to newly immigrated families to well-known Vancouverites like David Suzuki, “Vancouver: No Fixed Address” raises questions about the future of living in Vancouver.

After the screening, our panel of speakers (soon to be announced!) will initiate a discussion about the film, presenting their own experiences in the housing industry and engaging in conversation about the ways we can address this issue, with particular reference to student housing affordability.
