The Town of Ladysmith grew by an estimated 5.3% over the last five years according to the 2021 Census, however, there is a story beyond the numbers (we promise there’s no math involved so please keep reading).
Here are a few of the highlights we can pull from the latest Census:
OCP Estimate for 2020 (Range)
Housing (number of homes)
4,079 (3,926 of which are primary residences)
The Local Government Act requirement for all local governments in BC to prepare and consider a housing needs assessment every five years means this data will be updated more regularly and help inform Council’s decision-making.
We can expect more 2021 Census data to be released over the course of 2022, including data on housing affordability (including the number of households paying more that 30% of their gross income on housing).
