The Changing Region / Post Covid

  • Changing demand characteristics - Winnipeg region requires a minimum of 118,000 new units to satisfy demand to 2050

  • Property buyers still prefer houses or ground level units

  • Post-Covid survey of property owners reveals that Covid-19 introduced concepts that people can work from anywhere without a downtown commute and that they want to be part of a connected community

Housing Supply Concerns Post Covid

  • The Winnipeg region is now more unaffordable than Calgary, Edmonton, and Quebec

  • Due to supply constraints, there is not enough housing that people can afford

  • Leads to more bidders, greater competition, and a sharp rise in cost for a place to live

Housing Affordability

  • Affordability is now a real issue - while people desire a house, cannot afford to ‘buy into’ larger lot developments

  • Demand far exceeds supply

  • An increase in density leverages important new revenue for the RM through development

  • Infrastructure challenges are addressed most effectively and without burden to the ratepayer
