Over half of Vancouver households rent their homes. That is why Council is actively working to:
- Advocate for renters and help renters understand their rights
- Protect the existing supply of rental housing
- Provide grants to social and co-op housing providers
- Encourage new market rental housing units
We implement strategies to improve protections and supports for renters.
The Renter Office can provide information and resources to renters in Vancouver on renter-related issues in English, Cantonese, and Mandarin through the Renter Enquiry Line.
We monitor enquiries daily and aim to respond within two business days.
