A housing survey of Terrace seniors will be conducted later this year.
Greg Steves of the province’s Housing Policy Branch, told Terrace council that the telephone survey will assess the needs of seniors in light of rising housing costs.
The survey will focus on the northwest, but may expand to the entire province.
Steves says the goal of the survey is to find out the housing intentions of seniors in order to anticipate future needs.
Changing demographics in the northwest may leave some seniors without family support nearby.
