BCNPHA is proud to have launched the Housing Provider of the Year Award in 2015, which recognizes an innovative non-profit housing provider that responds to an environmental, operational or community challenge.

Nominations for 2018 are now open. Nominations can be submitted through the nomination form below. The deadline is October 28, 2018.

2017 Award Recipient: YWCA Metro Vancouver

YWCA Metro Vancouver provides safe, affordable housing for low-income single mothers and their families. Without this, single mothers and their children are unable to break free from the cycle of poverty. They have a long history of developing innovative housing. They were the first in Canada, to offer second stage transition housing for women and their children fleeing abusive relationships and transitional housing for pregnant and parenting women, overcoming substance abuse. Partnerships with municipalities and private developers have allowed them to develop housing in unlikely places such as above a library, above a fire hall and within private residential buildings.
