Hoy Creek Shared Equity Home Ownership Project: Models, Applicability, and Administration

The Hoy Creek Shared Equity Home Ownership Project aims to provide a site-specific example of how a shared equity home ownership project can succeed in Canada. As few Canadian examples exist of scalable affordable home ownership models, more research is required to identify options for implementation and strategies for long-term administration. This research project aims to identify strategies for shared equity home ownership implementation and administration while determining best practices for Community Land Trust execution. This project is intended to specifically support the development of the Hoy Creek lands in Coquitlam, BC while contributing to a growing body of research regarding options for alternative tenure models across B.C. and Canada.
