Non-market housing

This dataset contains data of non-market housing projects - both the buildings owned by City of Vancouver, and the buildings provided by other agencies.

Non-market housing is for low and moderate income singles and families, often subsidized through a variety of ways, including senior government support. This housing is managed through various operators, including the public, non-profit, co-op, and urban indigenous sectors.

Non-market housing is located throughout Vancouver in the forms of social, supportive, and co-op housing. This dataset includes temporary modular housing, which are demountable structures, not permanently affixed to land and assembled within months.

The inventory does not include the following types of housing:

  • Special Needs Residential Facilities - includes community care facilities providing licensed care services, and group residences providing housing as required by law, rehabilitative programs, or temporary housing
  • Single Room Accommodation - privately-owned single room occupancy (SRO) hotels, rooming houses, and other housing with rooms less than 320 square feet, typically featuring units with a basic cooking setup and shared bathrooms
  • Shelters - provide temporary beds, meals, and services to the city's homeless population


  • Unit total (and breakdown) of projects could change over the course of development and are not captured real time
  • Housing projects with "proposed", "approved" and "under construction" status may not contain unit number breakdown by "Design"
  • Housing projects with "proposed", "approved" and "under construction" status may not contain information on operator names or type
  • Unit total is the sum of clientele groups (families, seniors, and others)
