Fort St. John housing remains affordable for third year in a row


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John recorded the lowest housing affordability indicator for 2021 in Northern B.C.

The B.C. Northern Real Estate Board (BCNREB) housing affordability indicators estimate how much of the median household income in a community is needed to cover the significant costs of homeownership in a year. These costs include mortgages, municipal taxes and fees, and utilities for an average single-family home.

Affordability worsened in all measured northern communities in 2021, though Fort St. John’s affordability was only worsened by a small amount and is now sitting at 19.6 per cent.
