Tools & Portals

BC Housing provides several tools which allow you to input your data. These tools include the housing lists, calculators, program finder and shelter map and do not require a login.

We also offer several business portals. A portal is a web-based platform that collects information from different sources into a single user interface. Each portal provides personalized access, based on the user's role, to relevant information, applications, business processes and human resources.
