In 2020, the City of Merritt partnered with the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and M’akola Development Services to study housing needs in the community, and to develop a Housing Needs Report. As per Section 585 of the Local Government Act, adoption of a Housing Needs Report is mandatory. Municipalities must also update the report at least every 5 years after adoption of the first report.
On February 23, 2021, Council resolved to receive the report. To view the Housing Needs Report, click here.
A Community Forum is planned in future on the topic of housing needs in Merritt. Due to COVID-19, the date is not yet known. Please check back here for updates.
