Business Schools Address Housing Crisis in Vancouver Panel

EntSun News/10784673
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - EntSun -- The University of British Columbia and the University of California, Berkeley will be hosting a panel discussion on the housing crisis in Vancouver. The event will take place at the Arbutus Club in Vancouver, British Columbia. The primary audience will be alumni of the graduate schools of business at UBC (Sauder), UCBerkeley (Haas), and UofCalgary (Haskayne). The theme of the discussion will be "Vancouver and The Business of Housing." The session's theme provides a framework to discuss the future of real estate in Vancouver, the financial framework of large projects, and housing in a university community.

Urban environments all have challenges in common with respect to housing. Yet, Vancouver, Toronto, San Francisco, and Calgary have remarkable differences. The panel will compare and contrast these cities. Vancouver is uniquely impacted by foreign investment. Toronto benefits (and suffers) from its being the financial center of Canada. San Francisco's housing supply is inhibited by the balkanization of municipal government. Calgary is in the position of a buying opportunity in housing as a result of the economic cycle.
