The City of Vancouver is developing a Seniors Housing Strategy and want to hear from you!

Your feedback will help the city understand the housing needs of seniors, Elders and older adults aged 55+ living in Vancouver. Your input will help shape policies, partnerships, and advocacy actions being developed as part of the Seniors Housing Strategy this year.

There are a number of ways to get involved:

Attend a public engagement pop-up event
