Tenant Associations



​​Tenant Associations keep you connected with your neighbours and the broader community. They also provide a way for tenants to work with Metro Vancouver Housing staff in an advisory capacity on matters affecting your housing community. Metro Vancouver Housing encourages tenants to organize associations at each of our housing sites. We work with the representatives who are tenants like you to find opportunities to build stronger communities.

If you are interested in getting involved in or forming a Tenant Association, please email your interest to

Tena​​nt association ​stories

Metro Vancouver Housing Tenant Associations actively engage their communities by organizing seasonal potlucks, block parties and social events funded through community grants, Community Gardens Programs and much more. Each community is unique. Currently there are 32 active Tenant Associations across Metro Vancouver Housing sites.
