COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update: renters
April 1, 2020: Renters and landlords are facing an exceptional situation during the COVID-19 emergency.
Communities need people and people need homes.
The lack of affordable housing in Vancouver has put our city at risk. We want people to stay, live, and build a future in our city.
To meet the needs of our growing population and ensure our city remains vibrant and diverse, it’s important that we have an affordable and varied supply of housing.
Housing Vancouver is our 10-year housing strategy to reduce Vancouver's housing affordability gap and to provide a strong foundation for the future of Vancouver.
We're committed to ensuring all residents have a safe place to come inside, particularly during cold and extreme weather.
