Our role is to assist British Columbians in greatest need of affordable housing by providing options along the housing continuum. We work in partnership with the private and non-profit sectors, provincial health authorities and ministries, other levels of government and community groups to develop a range of housing options. Our partners have the expertise to identify the appropriate housing needs of their client groups and to deliver the support services needed for successful tenancies.
BC Housing is at the forefront of energy conservation among public housing providers in North America. In 2012 we saw significant reductions in energy use in our buildings, driven primarily by efficiencies gained in our directly managed portfolio, where we used 25 per cent less energy in 2012 than we did in our baseline year of 2005.
