Burnside Gorge Neighbours Mandate

We are dedicated residential and commercial neighbours in Burnside-Gorge passionately focused on a safe, healthy and thriving neighbourhood where, in the spirit of belonging and community, we can rely on our politicians to be equitable and accountable. To these ends we build community through the promotion of Block Watch, community engagement and being good neighbours.

We hold signatories of the December 1, 2018 BC Housing Burnside Gorge Community Commitment responsible to uphold and meet its terms.

We demand a regional, equitably distributed and properly resourced supportive housing model as recommended by best practices. Regional homelessness issues are bigger than our community therefore the solution must be bigger than our community. All neighbourhoods must step up, whereby we all host a proportionate number of supportive housing units.
