We are resetting the Vancouver Housing and Homelessness Strategy to focus on creating the right types of homes to meet the needs of the people who live and work in Vancouver.
The new strategy, Housing Vancouver, will be a 10-year plan to improve housing affordability for every resident.
Vancouver will need more than three times the amount of rental homes currently being built for single residents who earn $50,000 – many of these are our young workers and students.
To better understand the pressures on the current housing market and the issues local residents face, we have been listening to and learning from local partners, residents, other levels of government, and international housing experts over the last six months.
From our research and analysis, five new priorities have emerged that will help direct our new housing strategy.
