Campaign Creation: Renters Need Homes Too
Metro Vancouver is experiencing record low vacancy rates. If you are a renter, the struggle to find housing in the city — in which you work, or your friends and family live — is all too familiar.
One of the priorities outlined in the Metro Vancouver Regional Affordable Housing Strategy is to expand the supply of purpose built rental housing (PBR): new housing stock that is 100% long-term rental. However there have been very few purpose built rental units built in the past few decades.
At our next volunteer meeting we'll focus on creating a campaign to let municipalities know that renters need affordable housing too, and organize for Car Free Day on Commercial Drive in Vancouver.
Will you join us?
Bonus: our meeting location is an innovative housing community in East Vancouver!
