Information about building more homes in B.C. and Canada
  • In April 2023, the Province introduced the new housing plan called Homes for People to deliver more homes people need in a shorter timeframe and build more vibrant communities throughout B.C.
  • Budget 2023 supports the Homes for People plan, starting with more than $4 billion over three years and a commitment to invest $12 billion over the next 10 years to deliver more homes for people, faster.
  • The Province is on track to deliver a projected 114,000 homes completed or under active construction by 2027-28 – with tens of thousands of more homes to come through other avenues.
  • The Naut’sa mawt housing project is from the Community Housing Fund and, with additional investments through the B.C.’s Homes for People plan, the Community Housing Fund will deliver 6,000 more units, bringing the total to 20,000 new homes supported through the fund.
  • The National Housing Co-Investment Fund (NHCF) is a $13.2-billion program under the National Housing Strategy that gives priority to projects that help people who need it most, including women and children fleeing family violence, seniors, Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities, those with mental-health or addiction issues, veterans and young adults. 
  • The federal Budget 2022 proposes to advance $2.9 billion under the NHCF to accelerate the creation of as many as 4,300 new units and the repair of as many as 17,800 units. 
  • Canada's National Housing Strategy is a 10-year, $82-billion plan that will give more Canadians a place to call home.
