Housing Vancouver focuses on providing a great variety of housing across the city—the right homes Vancouver residents need, and can afford.
From our most vulnerable residents and seniors to young people and growing families, everyone who wants to live in Vancouver should have access to housing that is adequate and affordable.
Over the last three years, Vancouver has been creating new housing supply at a record rate. However, there is a significant need for new housing to meet the needs and incomes of Vancouver residents.
As Vancouver grows, new housing should respond to our incomes, families, and lifestyles.
