About BC Housing

BC Housing develops, manages and administers a wide range of subsidized housing options across the province. We also license residential builders, administer owner builder authorizations and carry out research and education that benefits the residential construction industry, consumers and the affordable housing sector.

BC Housing is responsible for fulfilling the directives of the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing’s yearly mandate letter. Our responsibilities related to social housing reflect an order-in-council under the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing Act that established the British Columbia Housing Management Commission (BC Housing) in 1967. Our obligations related to strengthening consumer protection for new home buyers and improving the quality of residential construction comes from the Homeowner Protection Act established in 1998.
