Apply for social and co-op housing in Vancouver

Are you a low income earner looking for an affordable home in Vancouver? You may qualify for social housing.

  • Low-income singles
  • Indigenous Peoples

How to apply for social housing

City staff do not manage the social housing program in Vancouver. It is run through the Province of British Columbia’s BC Housing program.
