Managing Principal, Gregory Henriquez, was recently featured in a Global News article regarding social housing policies in the Downtown Eastside.
“…Henriquez said the idea of injecting affordable housing into the Downtown Eastside, and making sure the right people get it, is essential.
‘The 60/40 split in the Downtown Eastside Plan has yet to change the lives of the people in the neighbourhood for the better,’ Henriquez said.
According to Henriquez the problem is the availability of funding, not the intended housing mix, and that all three levels of government must work together to execute the DTES Plan’s housing policy in the DEOD.
‘The partnerships between the city, the province and the feds have not happened to make it a reality,’ Henriquez told Global News in an interview.”
