En bref

Approximately 4,000 residents of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, one third of which are Indigenous, live in about 100 privately owned Single-Room Occupancy (SRO) buildings. This housing stock plays an integral role in the continuum of housing choices for vulnerable and low-income residents, often acting as the last rental home option before homelessness. This project aims to improve living conditions and tenant engagement, promote building rehabilitation, and stabilize rents in seven ‘pilots’ privately owned SRO hotels over the next three years.
