Quality of Life CHALLENGE
- From Shared Space - Chapter 4 - Supporting Sustenance: In creating new stock, collaborative work such as the Quality of Life CHALLENGE in BC linked federal, provincial, municipal government, institutions and community groups with the Housing Affordability Partnership. The flow of capital was coordinated, and housing trust funds set up. Total funds leverage 14 times the amount from provincial and federal government. By-law was influenced to join up work, create linkage and scale up efforts.
- From Shared Space - Chapter 4 - Supporting Sustenance: Monitoring progress around quality of life is growing, with many indicator initiatives, including the UK's 15 Headline Sustainability Indicators and Sustainable Seattle. BC's Quality of Life CHALLENGE provides information to the community through indicators, where possible consistent with the Quality of Life Monitoring System developed by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. This enables comparing progress.
