Provincial Homelessness Initiative

Under the Provincial Homelessness Initiative, the Province works in partnership with local communities, the federal government, and non-profit providers to develop new housing options with integrated support services to help individuals who are homeless or at risk move beyond temporary shelter to more secure housing and gain greater self-reliance. 

Through the provincial housing strategy, Housing Matters BC, the Province has committed to developing more than 6,000 new and upgraded supportive housing units and shelter beds under the Provincial Homelessness Initiative.
