City Lands Program for Non-Market Housing/City Land Leases

Burnaby leases land that it owns to non-profit societies and housing corporations seeking to build non-market housing. The City offers these leases at reduced or nominal rates, offsetting leasing costs through contributions from the Community Benefit Bonus Housing Fund. Current leases support 314 non-market units on nine properties.

The recently adopted City Lands Program for Non-Market Housing expands this practice. Through this program, the City proactively identifies City-owned properties that are suitable for non-market housing, and offers these sites to non-profit societies or government agencies at nominal lease rates through an open Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEOI) process.

Following its initial RFEOI process, Burnaby is partnering with two non-profit societies to build approximately 200 units at 3802 Hastings Street and 7898 Eighteenth Avenue.
