Vancouver City Council is moving forward with a 10-year plan to improve housing affordability. It includes creating up 72,000 new homes for renters and denser forms of housing in traditionally affluent areas such as Kerrisdale, Dunbar and Arbutus Ridge, which currently have predominantly single-family homes. As well, the city is investigating what jurisdictions like Australia and New Zealand are doing to limit or stop foreign buyers.
