Creating homes for people who live and work in Vancouver

Our vision is for all Vancouver residents to have access to affordable, safe, quality homes

Building on City-owned land, VAHA liaises with investment, development, and community partners to create below-market housing options.

Using innovative building techniques and unique partnerships, VAHA is focused on building high quality rental housing for individuals and families on low to moderate incomes across Vancouver.

Our mandate is to deliver 2,500 new affordable homes by 2021. Currently, VAHA has 2,288 units under development, which excludes 600 modular units scheduled to complete in 2018.

At City Hall we’ll keep pursuing all options and tools available to build more affordable rental housing"

What we are doing

VAHA works with communities and partners to design, build, fund, and operate rental homes for households in the low to moderate income brackets and those on government assistant income. The Agency also addresses other identified need that is not being met by the private market alone. We do this by securing innovative funding sources and partnerships with private investors and other levels of government to fund construction and management of affordable housing.
