This weekend featured another important milestone in our work together to end street homelessness, and build a range of new affordable housing options throughout Vancouver.
The opening of 123 quality housing units at Kingsway Continental is a significant contribution to increasing non-market rental housing stock in Vancouver. Located on Kingsway at Tyne, the City purchased the former Ramada to add new affordable housing. The positive impact of safe and affordable housing as a stabilizing effect on people’s lives cannot be overemphasized.
The infographic below highlights our action plan to rise to the challenge, and tells the story of the results we’ve achieved so far. I hope you’ll spread the word.
