  • City hotel policies could increase homelessness by 1000s

    Carnegie Action Project update:

    City hotel policies could increase homelessness by 1000s

    The City of Vancouver’s Single Room Accommodation (SRA) bylaw is not protecting residential hotel rooms for low income people. It also appears to be getting ready to gut or end the bylaw entirely, thus forcing single people on welfare to find nonexistent housing in other parts of the city for $375 a month.

    Here’s some bad news. Soon, the City of Vancouver Mayor and Council will
    talk about letting property developers convert hotels into Condos as early
    as 2008! That means possibly 1000's more people will be made homeless in
    Vancouver.

    It’s a complicated story and you have to be a lawyer to figure it out what
    they are planning, but read on and see if this explanation makes sense.
