The Bowen Island Municipality is inviting applications from qualified individuals to serve as the founding directors of the Bowen Island Housing Corporation, the new municipal housing organization authorized by Council in February.
The Bowen Island Housing Corporation will work with the Municipality, the community and the development sector to facilitate the delivery of diverse and affordable housing on Bowen Island, including both market and non-market types.
The skill-based founding board will implement an initial work plan in parallel with the completion of the incorporation process. The initial work plan includes the creation of a Housing Reserve Fund and the identification of a portion of the community lands in Snug Cove for the development of an affordable housing project in partnership with a private developer.
The ad inviting applications and describing the skills sought for the founding directors was placed in the island newspaper and can be downloaded here.
