Local Housing Survey

Beausjeour Brokenhead Development Corporation (BBDC) is in the process of investigating current housing needs for the community. The results of the community housing needs assessment will clarify community housing needs; aid officials in assigning priorities to housing needs; and guide in development policies, programs and strategies to address needs.
