Collaborations and Partnerships


Metro Vancouver Housing has worked with many different partners to build and operate affordable housing across our region, including federal and provincial governments, municipalities and not-for-profit organizations. Our partnerships with local community organizations are key to providing services for our tenants in the pursuit of supportive and inclusive communities.

Our region is facing an affordable housing crisis. To support this need, Metro Vancouver Housing is taking bold steps to increase our affordable housing portfolio. However, we know we can’t do it alone. Partnerships will be essential to address the shortage of affordable housing in our region.

Metro Vancouver Housing is seeking to partner wi​th a wide range of public, private, and non-profit housing stakeholders to build, manage, and preserve affordable rental housing across the region. Check out the Metro Vancouver Housing 10-Year Plan to learn more.​​

Information for potential partners

Federal and provincial governments

The Province, through BC Housing, and Metro Vancouver, through Metro Vancouver Housing, have signed a memoran​dum of understanding (MOU) that will result in the construction of approximately 2,000 affordable homes over a 10-year-period at priority sites identified by Metro Vancouver Housing.

Metro Vancouver is already in the process of developing the first phase of housing, also supported by the Province. The first phase will provide approximately 660 new homes the following five sites, supported with a provincial investment of $158 million.

Subsequent funding will be announced for the additional sites at a later date. Metro Vancouver is contributing land and cash equity valued at more than $367 million over the 10 years, and is working to leverage federal funding support.

The next phases outlined in the 10-Year Plan include new developments at Riverside Drive (District of North Vancouver) and Poplar Landing (New Westminster), as well as redevelopment at the following sites:


Metro Vancouver Housing is looking to connect with member jurisdictions to identify opportunities for partnership to develop new affordable rental housing across the region. As participants in the region’s affordable housing function, member jurisdictions are natural partners to collaborate with to develop new affordable housing throughout the region.

We recognize that some member jurisdictions may have limited available land, and therefore encourage members to contact us to discuss other opportunities for collaboration. Metro Vancouver Housing is looking to increase its housing portfolio, through the development of new sites, but also through redevelopment of existing sites and through other innovative partnerships.

To discuss opportunities for partnership on member jurisdiction lands, contact us:​​​​​.
