The first Monday after David Eby was sworn in as British Columbia's Premier, in November 2022, he introduced the Housing Supply Act, giving his government the authority to set housing supply targets for local governments and enforce compliance if needed.

After announcing the first 10 cities that would be receiving housing supply targets last May, the Province finally published the actual targets in September, ahead of the target period coming into effect on October 1, for a five-year period that ends on September 30, 2028.


The targets include those on an annual basis as well as a cumulative total, the latter of which represents 75% of the Province's housing needs estimate for the municipality.

The cities that receive housing supply targets are expected to report on their progress every year, except in the first year, when they are expected to report on their progress at both the midpoint and conclusion. The reports must be received by Council and submitted to the Province within 45 days of the end of the reporting period.

This month, those local governments are now publishing their progress reports for the first half of the first year, ending on March 31, 2024, and their reported totals are listed below. This page will also be updated when future progress reports are published and as more municipalities — the next 20 of which were announced last month — receive their targets.
