Additional Information


This dataset is intended to support BC local governments in meeting provincial requirements to develop housing needs reports.

Data Quality
  • BC Housing’s ‘Housing Continuum’ reports are based on ‘units’ ( housing units, beds, spaces and rent supplements, depending on each program) and do not report on the number of ‘people’ assisted.
  • Individual total and sub-total figures may not match exactly with the sum of the cells in their row/column, since units for the all subgroups service allocation groups are marked '0' if one of the subgroups has 5 or fewer units.
  • See file for further notes and definitions.
