Housing Vancouver - The implementation of affordable housing

Housing Vancouver is a 10-year strategy adopted by the City of Vancouver in 2017, that aims to foster a diverse and vibrant city. The strategy is based on three core principles: create the “right supply” while addressing speculative demand; retain the existing rental stock; and ensure support for vulnerable residents. These principles are enacted through new targets for housing to meet the needs of Vancouverites of all incomes, and a 3-Year Action Plan, which includes over 110 actions.

In total, the 10-year strategy calls for the construction of 72,000 homes. A particular focus is on providing 12,000 housing units for low-income households, especially families, seniors, and singles who cannot afford market rental or ownership housing, or who need supports in addition to safe, secure and affordable housing.
