As a branch of BC Housing, the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) is responsible for:
licensing residential builders and building envelope renovators province-wide
administering owner builder authorizations, and
carrying out research and education which benefits the residential construction industry and consumers.
Maintenance Matters is a series of bulletins and videos designed to provide practical information on the maintenance of the building envelope of multi-unit residential buildings including townhouses, low and high-rise residential buildings.
The provincial housing strategy, Housing Matters BC, recognizes the disproportionate number of Aboriginal individuals or families in British Columbia who are homeless or living in core housing need. BC Housing is working in partnership with the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) and Aboriginal housing providers to address the need for appropriate Aboriginal social housing through a range of housing options.
