Abundant Housing Vancouver supports more housing in Vancouver. For decades, City of Vancouver public hearings and consultations have been dominated by those who want to defend the status quo of housing scarcity. That needs to change! The City needs to hear from a broad range of voices. Pro-housing politicians need to know they have support, and opponents of housing need to know that people are paying attention.
If you want to support more housing in Vancouver, it can be hard to know where to start. We’re here to help. Our mailing list will keep you up-to-date on opportunities to be heard, along with summaries of the issues and suggestions for comments. Sign up today! We won't spam you, e-mails are sent only roughly once or twice per month.Sign up
Apartments - even low-rises - are illegal to build on 76% of Vancouver's residential land.
Vancouver's outdated zoning severely restricts where relatively affordable, multi-family housing can be built, preserving the most desirable areas of Vancouver for only the wealthy.
Abundant Housing Vancouver is a local group that believes adding housing is part of the solution to the housing crisis in our city. This is based on the common-sense idea that, if there is more housing for people, more people will have housing.

Our route will exhibit many “Missing Middle” housing types which are illegal to build in most of Vancouver today. Prior to the introduction of Vancouver’s zoning bylaw, this neighbourhood flourished as it developed with a mix of small apartment buildings, townhouses, and grand houses divided into a large number of apartments.
