We do not manage supportive housing in Vancouver.
Supportive housing is affordable housing that provides a range of on-site supports to residents, such as life-skills training, and connections to off-site services such as primary health care, mental health, or substance use services.
Since 2019, approximately 1,500 social and supportive homes have opened in Vancouver. There are approximately 1,700 units currently under construction.
Over the past three years, more than 650 temporary modular supportive homes have been created, providing immediate relief to hundreds of people living without a home.
