We are an informal network of concerned residents, business owners, farmers, and affordable housing advocates. We call ourselves SHAC, for Salt Spring Housing Action Committee. We want to see action on the biggest crisis facing our island today!
Members of our informal group include the Salt Spring Housing Council, Island Women Against Violence Society (IWAV), Salt Spring Community Services, and a number of local business owners, farmers, and community leaders.
We want to share Salt Spring island with people of all backgrounds, and put into action our shared values of stewardship and care for our fellow islanders. Our priority today is helping solve the affordable housing crisis, but we might take on other issues in the future.
Salt Spring was built on a can-do spirit of independence and taking care of each other. We are leaders in sustainability, creativity, and compassion. We believe can can solve the housing crisis and make Salt Spring better for everyone.
