Finding rental housing

We have created resources to support Vancouver renters in finding safe, suitable housing.

Properties with health or safety issues

Check the rental property standards database of buildings with maintenance, health, or safety issues.

Housing projects on City-owned land

The projects below are located on City-owned land and are either under construction or recently completed. 

We do not maintain a tenant waitlist and are not involved in the selection of tenants for these buildings, with the exception of Roddan Lodge.

To apply for housing, contact the housing operator listed for the project to learn about the building. If the contact details are not listed, the information will be provided closer to the completion of the project.

Defining project affordability

  • Housing Income Limits (HILs): set out by BC Housing and represent the maximum gross household income for affordable housing eligibility. HILs are intended to reflect the minimum income required to afford appropriate accommodation in the private market. Review 2021 Housing Income Limits
  • Lower-end-of-market (LEM): set at a discount to appraised market rents for each project by neighbourhood.
