The plan prioritizes higher-density housing near transit, making efficient use of space and connecting residents to essential services.

Vancouver will revamp its rezoning process and expand affordable rental programs, aiming for a more streamlined and inclusive approach to housing development.

Both Trudeau and Sim emphasized the seriousness of the commitment, calling it a “collective action” to address Vancouver’s housing crisis.

The Conservative Party expressed skepticism, claiming the government isn’t doing enough to meet the housing demand.
