VICTORIA, B.C. — Lisa Helps, the former mayor of Victoria, has been appointed Premier David Eby’s housing solutions adviser.
Helps will work with Ravi Kahlon, minister of housing, stakeholders and partners to develop BC Builds, states a press release.
“The current reality is that many people in our province struggle to find housing, even if they earn a good income,” Eby said in the release.
BC Builds is an initiative to build housing for middle-income families, individuals and seniors.
