After BChomeless.com discovered the “Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency” that are payed by the taxpayers we wonder if all that money they get would not be better spent for homeless shelters who need more spaces?
Contact them and ask them. What are they doing with with our taxpayer money? Housing becomes less affordable every year. Yet taxpayers pay them every year.

Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency
Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) is a City-controlled, but legally separate, entity created to implement the recommendations from the Mayor’s Task Force on Housing Affordability.
The housing agency’s goals are to:
- Ensure resources and projects align with Council goals and objectives
- Deliver housing as quickly, efficiently, and affordably as possible through standardized processes, economies of scale, and clear decision making
- Identify where the greatest impact can be made, and act as a catalyst for innovative housing ideas and models
- Evaluate outcomes and share learnings with the City and senior levels of government, driving standardization and streamlining of processes across multiple delivery platforms
