Social Housing

Last updated on December 8, 2022

The Province, through BC Housing, works with partners to provide social housing. Social housing is a housing development that government subsidizes and that either government or a non-profit housing partner owns and/or operates.

In addition to social housing the Province also provides rent supplements for low-income working families with children and low-income seniors.

Supportive housing is a type of social housing with on-site support and services.

Social housing and rent supplements are part of the Province's larger housing affordability strategy.
