Market Rental Housing

The Challenge: How to increase supply and decrease cost?

The Commission formed a Market Rental Housing Committee to focus on the serious challenge of increasing the supply of purpose-built rental housing in Vancouver. To stimulate solution-oriented debate on ways to respond to this challenge, the Committee prepared a proposal based on pre-zoning land around transit centres and designated neighbourhood centres. Under the proposal, a modest increase in density for new multi-family housing would be allowed in return for the developer providing a specified number of rental units for a fixed period of time.
