Mayor's Task Force on Housing Affordability
The mandate of the Mayor's Task Force on Housing Affordability is to examine conditions that exist in Vancouver which may act as barriers to the creation of affordable housing and the steps necessary to protect existing affordable housing, and to identify opportunities for increasing affordable housing.
The task force will:
- Develop innovative recommendations from an evidence-base that will help Vancouver become a more sustainable, diverse, and affordable city
- Prioritize affordability for those households with low to moderate incomes (which currently range from $21,500 to $86,500)
