Housing Approvals Study (HAS)

Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association releases third annual Housing Approvals Study with support by Landcor Data Corporation.

The Housing Approvals Study (HAS), the third report in this series examines the building approval process in an effort to reduce unnecessary time and costs for the delivery of an efficient supply of affordable housing across Metro Vancouver. HAS Best Practices (BPs) and a Composite Index are listed in an effort to foster transparent factual data-based information to encourage improvements in the housing approvals process across the region.

This on-line interactive page is intended to be used in concert with the GVHBA/Landcor Housing Approvals Study – 2017 Infill Housing report. Detailed information about the housing type under study, research notes and background detail are available in the report.
