Housing is a key priority for Planning Vancouver Together; a long-term planning initiative to create a city-wide plan to help guide community recovery and long-term planning on these traditional unceded lands we call Vancouver. We’ve heard a lot from you through this process and in recent years about your housing experiences and challenges; we want to take this opportunity to go deeper, in order to move towards a more equitable and resilient housing system.

From November 2019 to August 2020, you helped us to understand your challenges and identify what matters most to you and your communities. We heard

Housing is a key priority for Planning Vancouver Together; a long-term planning initiative to create a city-wide plan to help guide community recovery and long-term planning on these traditional unceded lands we call Vancouver. We’ve heard a lot from you through this process and in recent years about your housing experiences and challenges; we want to take this opportunity to go deeper, in order to move towards a more equitable and resilient housing system.

From November 2019 to August 2020, you helped us to understand your challenges and identify what matters most to you and your communities. We heard that rising unaffordability, housing insecurity, and homelessness are serious challenges facing Vancouver residents.

In October 2020, 10 provisional goals were endorsed by City Council to help guide us towards the future we want to become. Goal #5 of the Vancouver Plan is to Develop an Affordable City with Diverse and Secure Housing for every resident that they can afford with 30% or less of their household income.

In the second phase of public engagement to develop the Vancouver Plan, we are taking a focused approach and want to engage more deeply with you on your housing experience and ideas for a more resilient, affordable and healthy housing system. Share your thoughts/questions below!

Please visit the Planning Vancouver Together page for more engagement opportunities on the development of the Vancouver Plan.
