Rental Assistance Programs
Canada BC Housing Benefit
This program helps make rent more affordable for select households that do not qualify for our other rental assistance programs.
It is not a benefit that households can apply directly for.
The benefit will be distributed to identified priority groups either by non-profit housing providers who will identify and select eligible applicants, or in some cases by BC Housing who will select eligible households from The Housing Registry database. In the coming months there will be a proposal process to identify non-profit providers interested in administering the benefit to identified priority groups.
