Housing Vancouver strategy

Housing Vancouver provides a strong foundation for the future in Vancouver.

Vancouver should be a place where:

  • Neighbourhoods are full of families
  • Young people can afford to buy a home
  • People of all incomes and backgrounds can participate in their communities

The focus of our 10-year housing strategy

  • Building more affordable housing
  • Addressing and limiting the over-inflated cost of land that is driving up housing prices
  • Ensuring the right types of homes are built – homes our residents need and can afford
  • Protecting and renewing existing affordable rental housing across Vancouver
  • Providing housing and support for our most vulnerable residents
  • Streamlining City processes for faster housing development
