As the leading voice of affordable housing in BC, we use our position to provide informed policy advice to the provincial and federal governments to advance our mission of safe, secure, and affordable housing for all.

BCNPHA’s consultation submissions include work that has guided the formation of Canada’s human rights-based approach to housing in the National Housing Strategy, and helped develop the federal Homelessness Partnering Strategy. We have also supported changes that strengthened the Residential Tenancy Act, and informed provincial policy delivering housing and homelessness services through 2027.
