Essential Workforce Mortgage Fund
We all share an interest in growing and securing skilled tradespeople. This session is intended to start the conversation about how we can keep those skilled workers within the communities they work.
Many of BC’s essential skilled workers can’t afford to live where they work because they can’t afford to buy their first family home. The BC Construction Association is not only raising this as a serious issue but they are proposing a solution that has caught our attention. This is your opportunity to be part of the early discussion and learn more about how the Essential Workforce Mortgage Fund can improve access to mortgages at competitive rates and affordable monthly payments.
