Affordable Housing and Support for Renters
"The living conditions in the Balmoral Hotel, a single-room occupancy hotel owned by the Sahota family, are disgusting - no resident of Vancouver should have to live in housing like that. The repeated building and safety violations are putting some of our most vulnerable residents at risk and are a massive strain on City resources.
The City of Vancouver’s Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) is taking steps to enable more than 1,350 new affordable homes on eight additional City-owned sites. The City-owned sites, worth $72.5 million, were recently allocated to VAHA by Vancouver City Council to enable the development of new affordable rental housing.
