David Campbell and Don Mills discuss the New Brunswick Housing Crunch

This week on the Insights podcast, Don interviews David about a recent report he wrote about housing demand in New Brunswick.  Commissioned by the New Brunswick Business Council, the report looks at housing demand by region across New Brunswick between 2023-2030.  For the past 30 years, New Brunswick has averaged around 3,000 housing starts per year.  David’s report proposes the province will need to build an average of around 8,500 per year through 2030 to have enough housing to support a fast-growing population.  Don and David weigh into a wide variety of topics from the lack of construction workers to affordable housing to the potential role of manufactured housing.  Well worth an hour of your time.  A copy of the report can be found at the Housing Hub of New Brunswick website: https://hhnb-rlnb.ca/advocacy/
