More renters in B.C. will be protected through the creation of a new $500 million Rental Protection Fund, according to the B.C. government.
B.C. Premier David Eby, along with his housing minister, made the announcement Thursday morning, saying the government’s actions will make a big difference for thousands of renters in communities across the province.
“We know finding an affordable home is challenging,” Eby said. “The long-lasting effects of the pandemic, our growing population, supply chain issues, and labour challenges are all contributing to a very serious housing crisis.”
“We expect the fund to protect renters in thousands of affordable units,” he continued.
