VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Leader: Sylvia Fuller (University of British Columbia)

Type of poverty: Housing-cost

The Vancouver site provides the classic case of "high-housing-cost" poverty.  Despite such high housing costs, the low-income population is nonetheless relatively large, constituting 17.4 percent of the Vancouver population.
