UBC Undergraduate Research

Rapid Transit : Housing Affordability Black, Tom; Doshi, Jenil; Lin, Alvin


To analyze the impact of the Canada Line on housing prices in Greater Vancouver, we will use data collected by the British Columbia Assessment Authority (“BC Assessment”), one of the primary sources for real property assessments and information in BC. The data will be obtained through an existing use agreement between BC Assessment and the UBC Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate. Under the use agreement, UBC faculty and students have access to roll data from 2014 to 2018 in BC’s Lower Mainland, as well as real property transaction data from 2005 to 2018. Disclaimer: “UBC SEEDS provides students with the opportunity to share the findings of their studies, as well as their opinions, conclusions and recommendations with the UBC community. The reader should bear in mind that this is a student project/report and is not an official document of UBC. Furthermore readers should bear in mind that these reports may not reflect the current status of activities at UBC. We urge you to contact the research persons mentioned in a report or the SEEDS Coordinator about the current status of the subject matter of a project/report.”
