Our new quarter-billion-dollar partnership with the Federal Government means we will build 1,100 new homes for the homeless, low- and middle-income earners. This is how we build a Vancouver that works for everyone.

Still more to do, but with $184M in Federal funding helping to activate over $96M in City-owned land & grants, we're getting to work building co-ops, modular housing, rental apartments, and more for the people of Vancouver. That’s the power of partnerships.

Today I joined Canada's Minister responsible for housing to announce a landmark quarter billion-dollar investment to fast-track 1,100 new homes across Vancouver. This is what happens when governments work together in partnership and deliver on their promises.

Prioritizing a safe, regulated drug supply in Canada is imperative to prevent overdoses. I will continue to advocate for more funding for harm reduction and do my part to help change the national dialogue on safe supply.

Pride is about coming together to celebrate and protect human rights. That’s why it was so powerful to see all Federal leaders at the parade march together in unity. Canada is stronger when we all defend the power of love.

When the Federal Government enables non-profit developers like Catalyst to deepen affordability, and when the City of Vancouver activates publicly-owned land, we can create communities everyone can afford to call home. That's how we build a Vancouver that works for everyone!

Thanks to new Federal financing our housing project at Main & 6th will now have 80% of units geared to minimum & living wage earners, up from 30%. That's 120 homes for folks who work in hotels, grocery stores, hair salons & gas stations. That’s the power of partnerships!

Today we launched at City Hall. Pride is truly a party with a purpose, a celebration of the remarkable LGBTQ2+ community, of who they are and who they love. I look forward to celebrating Pride this and every week and seeing everyone at the parade.

Moving forward with SkyTrain to Langley is great news for residents across our entire region. Rapid transit investment in the Surrey-Langley and SkyTrain lines will help and improve the lives of tens of thousands of commuters.
