Vulnerable groups, such as seniors, newcomers, people with disabilities, and Aboriginal communities, are disproportionately impacted by sky-high housing and rental costs.
The B.C. Liberal government has done little to tackle low rental vacancy rates, landlord rip-offs, “reno-evictions”, and a lack of afforable housing.
- 23% of renters spend more than half of their income on housing
- Rental costs in Metro Vancouver have increased by 41% since 2006
- More than 10,000 people are on social housing waiting lists
Access to decent and quality affordable housing must be a right for all B.C. families—not just the wealthy.
We can't wait any longer for the BC Liberals to fix the problem.
