This is what partnership looks like! The 1st phase of Vancouver’s new Centre for Social & Economic Innovation is now open thanks to support from all levels of government and @vancitycu. From a former police station to a vibrant new community hub, 312 Main has artist studios, plenty of meeting and co-working space, and will be home to social enterprises like @hives4humanity

Big news! Tonight, Vancouver City Council approved the legalization of duplexes in 99 per cent of all single family neighbourhoods across Vancouver. This is a big boost to “missing middle” homes in Vancouver & will help provide more of the right supply of housing for people who live and work in our city.

Vancouver is now the first city in Canada to have a formal Community Benefit Agreement (CBA) policy that will boost local hiring & purchasing on major projects!
This will help to ensure that Vancouver residents— particularly those who may face barriers to employment— and our local businesses will directly benefit from big developments in our city.

It’s great to see the doors open on another 52 temporary modular homes, moving us one step closer to our goal of bringing 600 people in off the street and providing them with the support they need to get back on track.

Thanks to our partners @georgeheyman @jjbreakspear @PHScss, B.C. Housing, Horizon North and many others who helped make this happen!
