Low rental vacancy rates are putting stress on Vancouver’s renters, contributing to the housing crisis in our city. Homes that are left empty could be used to help relieve low vacancy rates.
The City of Vancouver wants to encourage owners of empty homes to bring them into the rental stock.
Vancouver City Council has approved a proposed approach for an Empty Homes Tax (EHT) and they’re looking for your thoughts and ideas as they move ahead.
Attend an Open House on Saturday, October 15th from 10am-2pm at the Vancouver Public Library to learn more about the Empty Home Tax and be sure to share how you think it will impact your community.
