Housing Initiative

About the Project

West Prince is experiencing an increased demand for housing from a variety of factors. The private sector has responded by increasing the number of apartment units and individuals are constructing family dwellings. Government has also made significant investments in its deeply affordable housing units through agreements with private developers.

There is concern in the community that not all development is sufficiently meeting the needs of all resident types. The West Prince Housing Initiative seeks to engage tenants, community organizations, and other stakeholders in the housing sector and generate collaborative ideas to address housing concerns in the region.

How to Participate

Everyone living in Western PEI is encouraged to participate in this initiative! Develop West Prince is currently asking for the public’s participation in our housing survey and by attending our engagement sessions:

Housing Surveys

Develop West Prince has asked AOR Solutions to complete a housing needs assessment survey for West Prince. The survey seeks to better understand the current housing situation for area residents while assessing potential future need in the region in a variety of areas.

We invite you to take the resident survey if you are an area resident, or the employer survey if you are an employer. Complete the survey and be entered to win a $50 grocery gift card!

Housing Engagement Sessions

Develop West Prince has asked AOR Solutions to meet with residents, employers, community organizations, and developers/landlords to better understand the current housing context in the region. The goal of these sessions is to gain the community’s perspective on housing, the housing market, and how we can all work toward a livable community in Western PEI.

Attendees at each session will receive a $10 grocery card. Individuals are welcome to attend the session of their choice regardless of where they live.

Transportation and children’s activities are available — register for transportation and children’s activities.
