A range of affordable housing choices is available for all Vancouverites.
- End street homelessness
- Enable 2,900 new supportive housing units
- Add 5,000 new social housing units
Having a place to call home gives us a sense of security, control, belonging, identity, and privacy. There has been some progress toward affordable housing targets, though more work remains. Vancouver is less affordable than other cities, and rental vacancy rates are lower.
Considerations for this goal include:
- Homelessness and related physical and mental health issues
- Housing affordability
Progress we've made so far

How we measure change
We use a number of data sources to monitor trends in the health of the city. We monitor progress toward A Home for Everyone using data from the federal census program, the annual homeless count and monitoring of new housing development projects.
