HOUSING 1975:
A REVIEW
British Columbia's housing sector
showed some improvements in 1975, in
spite of continuing rampant inflation
in land and construction costs and steep
interest rates throughout North America.
The Province's population increased by
50,000 for a total of 2,471,000 persons.
This growth rate, however, was the
lowest since 1962 and represented a
2.1-per-cent increase, a sharp decline
from the 3.5-per-cent rate recorded in
mid-1974, but still above the 1.5-per-cent
Canadian average.
Also, for the first time since 1958, the
Province had a net loss of families in
1975; the net loss of 30 families was in
sharp contrast to the net gain of 3,731
families in 1974.
Housing starts throughout British
Columbia increased by 9 per cent with
34,152 starts as compared with 31,420 in
the previous year.
Only Metro Vancouver reported a
decline of 8 per cent from 14,452 starts
to 13,308.    Greater Victoria had a
51-per-cent hike, from 2,630 starts in
1974 to 3,980 in 1975.
Centres with populations of over
10,000 recorded a total of 8,794 starts,
a 35-per-cent increase over the 6,533
starts in 1974.    Rural communities, with
less than 10,000 persons, had a
3-per-cent increase, 7,805 starts in
1974 to 8,070 this year.
The inventory of newly completed,
unoccupied apartments and rowhouses in
Metro Vancouver increased by 145 per
cent in 1975 from 675 units in
November 1974 to 1,652 a year later.
In Greater Victoria there were 199,
one unit less than the 200 units that
were unoccupied in November 1974.
Metro Vancouver had 1,158 vacant,
single-detached new houses and duplexes
in November 1975, 441 units less than
a year previously.    Greater Victoria
had 34 unoccupied new homes as against
1 1 1 such units in November 1974.
Apartment vacancy rates showed no
improvement and remained at 0.1 per
cent in both Metro Vancouver and
Greater Victoria.
 Z 8
BRITISH COLUMBIA
There are some 824,000 dwelling units
(one unit for every three persons) in
British Columbia today.  Approximately
60 to 63 per cent, or just over half a
million units, are owner-occupied.  The
remaining units are rented.

THE SECOND YEAR
The Department of Housing observed
the second anniversary of its
establishment on November 15, 1975,
after a productive, action-filled year.
The Department's functions remained
unchanged: "to supervise, acquire,
develop, maintain, improve, and dispose
of housing in the Province" and to
perform other duties assigned by
Cabinet.
During 1975 the Department
administered the following Acts:
Elderly Citizens' Housing Aid Act,
Elderly Citizen Renters Grant Act
(repealed effective December
31, 1975),
Housing Act,
Leasehold and Conversion
Mortgage Loan Act,
Provincial Home Acquisition Act,
Provincial Home-owner Grant Act,
Renters Resource Grant Act
(repealed March 31, 1975),
School Tax Removal and Resource
Grant Act,
Strata Titles Act.
Dunhill Development Corporation,
acquired by the Department on
January 10, 1974, was primarily assigned
the responsibility of land assembly and
housing development within the Greater
Vancouver Regional District and the
Capital Regional District and
administration of the Province-wide
proposal call program.
The British Columbia Housing
Management Commission, an agency
of the Province created under the
Housing Act in 1967 to manage public
housing, increased its portfolio by
approximately 63 per cent in 1975.
The Commission had 6,845 units as
of December 31,1975, as compared with
4,200 units at the previous year's end.
The number of units for senior citizens
increased by 77.5 per cent, from 2,110
units to 3,745 units, while family units
jumped by 48 per cent, from 2,090 units
to 3,100 units.
Twenty-three more communities had
BCHMC rental units in 1975, increasing
the 1974 total of 15 to 38.
The Federal/Provincial rent
supplement program for tenants in
nonprofit and Government-owned
housing projects was also administered
by the Commission in 1975.

FINANCES
Department of Housing
The Department's activities, programs,
and projects are financed by Votes and
Funds contained in the Provincial Budget.
Unexpended moneys in Votes at the end
of the fiscal year revert to the Provincial
Treasury.    Unexpended moneys in Funds
remain in the respective funds and are
carried over into the fund for the next
fiscal year.
The Department administers two
funds: (1) The Housing Fund and
(2) The Home Acquisition Fund.
The Housing Fund was established in
1974.    It replaces the $10 million
Housing Incentive Fund.  The
unexpended balance from the latter
plus additional advances raised the
Housing Fund to $20 million in 1974.
Another $50 million was added by the
1974/75 budget and $69,720,459 by
the 1975/76 allocation.
On December 31,1975, the balance
in this fund stood at $8 million.
The $220 million Provincial Home
Acquisition Fund, established in 1967,
received a boost of $40 million in 1974
to help provide first leasehold mortgages
and home conversion loans, besides the
home acquisition grants and second
mortgage loans financed by this fund.
There was a $31.9 million balance in
this fund at year's end.
While the Department administers the
Provincial Home-owner Grant Act, the
School Tax Removal Act, and the Renters
Tax Credit Program (RentAid), the funds
for these grants are included in the
appropriations for other departments.
Dunhill   Development
Corporation  Limited
The Department acquired Dunhill and
its subsidiary companies for $5.8 million
in January 1974.
At the end of its 1974/75 fiscal year,
the Crown-owned firm reported a
$2,594,456 net profit.    Retained
earnings was $5,682,746.    Dunhill's
total assets were at $13,461,690, while its
total liabilities were $5,876,775, for a
net worth of $7,584,915.
George Gray
British Columbia Housing
Management Commission
The Department shares with Central
Mortgage and Housing Corporation costs
of the Commission, the operating losses
of the rental units managed by the
Commission, and the rent subsidies
provided by the Commission to its
tenants and tenants in selected nonprofit
senior citizens' housing projects.

Land Assembly and Servicing
As the shortage of serviced land is the
basic reason for inflated land prices,
the Department gave top priority to land
assembly and servicing.
The Department has now assembled
some 6,000 acres, representing some 188
acquisitions in over 50 municipalities.
Under Section 215A of the Municipal
Act, the Department entered into
agreements for servicing municipal and
privately owned lands within municipal
development areas.
Development of Subdivisions
and New Neighbourhoods
The Department was involved in the
development of new subdivisions ih many
municipalities and some under the
auspices of the Federal/Provincial
partnership, with capital, costs, profits,
and losses shared on a 75-per-cent
(Federal) and 25-per-cent (Provincial)
basis.
The development lots are either leased
or were sold through various Federal,
Provincial, or municipal programs.

Construction of Family
Rental Units
The Department implemented a new
approach to the construction of family
rental units by private builders through
the proposal call system.
Builders, large and small, were
provided interim-financing for the
construction of ground-oriented family
accommodation on the builders' own
land or, in some instances, on Crown-
owned land.
When a project is completed, it is
purchased with a fair return to the
builder.
The units generated by this program
are rented under the auspices of the
British Columbia Housing Management
Commission.
The program was established in May
of 1974 and, by the end of that year,
there were 418 units valued at
$15,654,000 under construction.
As of December 31,1975, some 596
units valued at $20,285,000 had been
completed in 1 1 municipalities under this
program and turned over to the British
Columbia Housing Management
Commission.
There were 750 units valued at
$24,970,000 under construction in 14
municipalities at the end of 1975.

PROGRAMS
Condominium Development
Amendments to the Strata Titles Act
were passed in 1975.
More stringent controls were placed
on conversions.  Also, for the first time in
Canada, condominiums may be built on
leased Crown or municipal land.
To enable the British Columbia
Association of Strata Corporations to
establish an office to service
condominium corporations throughout
the Province, the Department extended
a start-up grant to the association.
Rural and Remote Area
Housing
Under a Federal-Provincial agreement
signed in 1974, the Federal and
Provincial Governments share on a 75 to
25-per-cent basis the construction costs
of new homes in remote areas.
This program is for communities with
a population of less than 2,500, although
larger centres may be eligible if other
government programs are not available.
In 1975, the Federal/Provincial
partnership surpassed its target of
constructing 300 units in rural and
remote areas. There were 334 units
built as of December 31, 1975, and 414
units designated or under construction.
British Columbia thus had more units
built and under construction under the
program than any other Province.
Neighbourhood Improvement
Program
The purpose of this program is to
improve the amenities and living
conditions in residential neighbourhoods.
The Provincial Government designates
the municipalities which will participate
in the program in any given year while
the designated municipality selects the
neighbourhoods which will receive the
financial assistance.
In 1973/74, the first year of the
agreement, the Federal Government
extended $6 million and the Provincial
Government approved $2 million for
programs in eight designated
municipalities.    In 1975, 16
municipalities were selected to receive
a total of $10.2 million: $5.1 million in
grants and $2.55 million in loans from
the Federal Government and $2.55
million from the Province.
 Z 16
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Nonprofit Senior Citizens1
Housing
The Department encouraged nonprofit
sponsors such as service clubs, churches,
ethnic and other groups, to build and
manage various types of senior citizen
housing.
The Department's program, under the
Elderly Citizens' Housing Aid Act, passed
in 1957, provided
• grants of up to one third of capital
costs to self-contained home
developments;
• grants of 35 per cent for boarding
residences and facilities offering
special care to occupants;
• purchase of suitable sites, if necessary, and transfer of title when
mortgage is approved and purchase
price is refunded to the Department.
To encourage municipalities to support
senior citizens' housing, the Municipal
Act was amended to remove the
obligatory municipal tax exemption for
new developments approved after April 1,
1974.    Municipalities are now able to
subject these projects to real property
taxes for the first time.
To further reduce rents, the Rent
Supplement Program was extended to
nonprofit housing so that senior citizens
would not pay more than 25 per cent of
their income on rent.
Regulations were also amended to
broaden eligible guidelines for
accommodation in these nonprofit
housing units.
Amendments now require that the
"average" fixed income of tenants shall
not exceed 130 per cent of Mincome
($239.85 on April 1, 1975), or $31 1.80.
Previously, occupancy was limited to
elderly persons whose "total" fixed
income did not exceed 1 15 per cent
of Mincome.
The amendments also require that
preference in the allocation of suites be
given to those whose fixed income does
not exceed Mincome or to persons whose
names are recorded in a housing registry
established or designated by the Minister,
such as the British Columbia Housing
Management Commission's waiting list.
In 1975, $10 million was allocated
for senior citizens' self-contained and
hostel units plus $2 million for personal
and intermediate care facilities.
As of December 31,1975, the
Department was assisting in the
construction of some 2,969 apartment
and 802 special-care, nonprofit senior
citizens' units throughout the Province.

Co-operative housing subscribes to the
principle that housing is for shelter and
not for profit.
The Department's assistance to
housing co-operatives included
• purchase of land for co-operatives or
preference in the disposition of
Crown land.
• a land lease at 4 per cent of market
value with the first payment due
12 months after execution of the
lease.
• a high-impact grant of up to 10 per
cent of the construction cost is
awarded in special cases to lower
rents for a period of not less than
five years and not more than
10 years;
• funds shared with CMHC for
deposits and rent supplements
for low-income residents.
The Department assisted in the
establishment of some 25 new
co-operatives.  As of December 31,
1975, there were 895 Government-
assisted co-operative housing units
occupied, 360 under construction, and
847 planned.  The Department has
leased 86.28 acres of Crown land to
housing co-operatives and an additional
36.24 acres have been committed toward
this form of housing tenure.
High-Impact Grants totalling
$ 1,608,234.10 were awarded to nine
housing co-operatives during 1975.
A $ 175,000 grant was extended to
United Housing Foundation in 1975 to
provide technical guidance to groups
intending to form co-operatives.  This
grant was made on the condition that the
Foundation be self-supporting after using
up this grant.  The nonprofit organization
was established in 1972 to promote the
development of housing co-operatives.
A $160,000-grant was extended to the
Foundation in 1974.

High-Impact Grants
To preserve the economic viability of
housing projects built by the third sector
(nonprofit) the Department introduced
the "high-impact" grant program in
1975.
The grants are up to 10 per cent of
capital cost of housing projects sponsored
by nonprofit societies, corporations,
and co-operatives.
The "full recovery" rents for some of
these projects are too high but, because
of the fixed debt-service charges, these
rents should come within affordable
range after five or ten years.
It is, therefore, necessary to extend
some form of rent supplement for the
first five to ten years with the supplement
highest in the first year and diminishing
every successive year as income increases.
The "high-impact" grants reduce the
"full recovery" rents such that they do
not exceed 30 per cent of a co-op
member or tenant's income.
The amount of the grant is established
annually based on the spread of the
individual member's income.
Grants totalling $2,284,573.10 were
extended to nine housing co-operatives,
a nonprofit society, and the Greater
Vancouver Regional District Housing
Corporation.
Rent Supplement Program
At the initiative of the Department,
a Federal/Provincial rent supplement
program was established in British
Columbia in 1975 for all low and modest
Regional Managers (left to right): Ray Skelly
(Vancouver); Doug McColl (Victoria); Howie Morgan
(Kelowna); Vic Hamm (Prince George); and
Ray Daniels (Cranbrook).
income tenants in nonprofit and
co-operative housing projects.
Under this program, tenants do not pay
more than 25 per cent of their gross
income toward rent.  The rent supplement
is the difference between this amount
and the break-even rent of the unit.  The
two levels of government will share the
subsidies to the tenants.
Generally, up to 25 per cent of the
family units and up to 100 per cent of
senior citizens' units in a designated
project are eligible for assistance under
this program.   The two Governments,
however, may approve higher ratios in
family accommodations.
The total budgeted subsidy for the
6,945 units managed by the Commission
for 1975 was $6.26 million.
Twenty nonprofit housing projects
received $94,074.  There were 825
residents involved in 1,117 eligible units.

Rental Information Service
Grants
The maximum annual grant was
15 cents per capita and was intended to
cover the deficits of rental information
service.
The grant was subject to the following
conditions:
The municipality makes a contribution
to the service equal to 50 per cent
of the Provincial grant.
Fees levied by the service may not
exceed $10, with no charge for
senior citizens, students, and social
allowance recipients.
The service employs people from the
Department of Human Resources'
opportunities program or incentive
program, whenever possible.
Only three municipalities applied for
and received the grant since the program
was established:

North Vancouver City __    4,777.00
City of Vancouver   37,296.00
District of Burnaby     18,626.67
Residential Land Lease
A new concept introduced by the
Department to tackle the high cost of
serviced land from another front was
the land lease program.
The Department leased individual lots
of land to families to lower the cost of
owning a home where it was developing
subdivisions through land assembly or on
Crown lands.
These lots were leased to a qualified
purchaser by means of a prepaid 99-year
lease, or a 60-year lease that had a low
monthly rental rate but no lease rent
payable for the first year.
Leasehold subdivisions were developed
in Chetwynd, Coquitlam, Fort Nelson,
Granisle, Kamloops, Mackenzie, Nakusp,
Port Edward, Port Hardy, Port McNeill,
Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke,
Squamish, Vancouver, and Williams Lake.
Some 619 leases were issued in 1975.
There were 604 60-year leases and 1 5
99-year leases issued in 1975.
Leasehold Mortgage Loans
To encourage families to build their
own homes on leased land, leasehold
mortgage loans were made available with
low-income families eligible for a reduced
interest rate.
There were 219 applications for the
first mortgage loans during the first two
months (November and December 1974)
of the program and 162 loans were
approved. The value committed was
$4,395,260.
Approximately $13.9 million from the
Provincial Home Acquisition Fund was
paid out for 510 first mortgages on leased
land.

Home Conversion Mortgage
Loans
To increase rental accommodation and
residential densities in large urban areas
without disrupting neighbourhoods with
comprehensive redevelopment, the
Department unveiled a home conversion
mortgage loan program.
The Department offers a loan of up to
$ 12,000 for the first new rental unit
created in a duplex or multiple dwelling
and $6,000 for each additional unit.
The interest rate is 8 per cent if the
loan is secured by a first mortgage and
9 per cent if secured by a second
mortgage.
The loans were made available initially
to resident home-owners in Vancouver,
Burnaby, and New Westminster, and
were extended to Victoria, Oak Bay,
and Esquimalt in 1975.    Many homeowners were obviously interested in
converting their dwellings as the
Department received over some 1,200
inquiries in 1974 alone about the
program.
Rigid municipal zoning and building
by-laws were, however, major obstacles
and only 43 applications for the loans
were approved in 1975.    Value
committed was $576,000.
In 1974, 17 applications were
approved and $258,000 was committed
during the first six months (July to
December) of the program.
Approximately $834,000 for a total of
60 home conversion loans were paid out
from the Provincial Home Acquisition
Fund.

Provincial Home-owner Grant
and School Tax Removal and
Resource Grant
The Department administers the
Provincial Home-owner Grant, introduced
in 1967, and the School Tax Removal
and Resource Grant.
The home-owner grant, paid to each
eligible home-owner and first applied
against the local school tax levy, was up
to $200, with an additional grant of $50
or a total of $250, to resident homeowners age 65 and over.
Total Provincial Home-owner Grant
payments in fiscal year 1974/75 were
$96,870,018, an increase of $7,951,529
over 1973/74 payments.
 DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING
Z 21
An estimated $87,182,850 of the
home-owner grants awarded was applied
to local school taxes levied in 1974. The
balance of $9,687,168 was applied to
reduce other local property tax levies.
The School Tax Removal and Resource
Grant introduced in 1974 provided a
payment of up to 20 per cent of the
excess of school taxes after a deduction
of the home-owner grant to a maximum
of $40 and a minimum of $30. The
School Tax Removal and Resource Grant
in 1975 was 40 per cent of the amount
of school taxes in excess of the basic
($200) home-owner grant with a
minimum of $30 and a maximum of $80.
Total School Tax Removal and
Resource Grant payments in fiscal year
1974/75 were $14,905,208.
As a result of the two property tax
relief programs, the Provincial Homeowner Grant and the School Tax Removal
and Resource Grant, many British
Columbia home-owners paid a minimum
property tax of $1 for local government
services, including education.
Applications for these annual grants
were made on the property tax bill.
Provincial Home Acquisition
Grants and Loans
The Provincial Home Acquisition
Grant and Loan Program, established in
1967, serves as a catalyst in the
production of new homes through home-
ownership.
The Department offered a grant of up
to $1,000 or a second mortgage loan of
$5,000 for a new dwelling, and a grant of
$500 or a second mortgage loan of
$2,500 for an older dwelling to persons
who have been living and renting
respectively in British Columbia for two
years before the date of purchase.
An annual refund of 10 per cent
(up to $50) of the principal and interest
payments was allowed for regular
repayments of second mortgage loans,
making an effective rate on a $5,000
25-year loan of 7.5 per cent.
Monthly average applications in 1975
reflected the financial climate. The lack
of available first mortgage funds and the
high interest rate of these mortgages
slowed down both house sales and
construction.  This directly affected
mortgage and grant applications.

There were 32,057 applications made
in 1975, or an average of 2,671 per
month.  The monthly average for 1974
was 2,768.
There were 10,585 applications for
housing grants totalling $6.5 million and
15,670 second mortgage loans valued
at $59.1 million approved in 1975.
As of December 31,1975,
approximately $74 million from the
Provincial Home Acquisition Fund was
approved for 1 15,000 housing grants and
$280.2 million for 52,772 second
mortgage loans in effect with a total
balance outstanding of $1 84.67 million.
Renters' Assistance
The Elderly Citizen Renters Grant Act
was introduced in 1972 to assist residents
over age 64 living in rental
accommodation for a minimum of
one year immediately preceding
application.
In 1974 the program was extended
to include all renters in British Columbia
under the Renters Resource Grant Act.
In 1974, grants were $30 for renters
under the age of 65 and $80 for renters
over 65.
By a 1975 amendment to the Income
Tax Act, the Province introduced
RentAid, the British Columbia Renters'
Tax Credit Program.
A maximum of $ 1 00 RentAid for
eligible renters over 16 years of age was
claimable in the 1975 Federal income
tax return form.   The 1975 grant was
$100 less 1 per cent of taxable income,
with no grant exceeding 10 per cent of
rent paid in 1975, except for renters over
age 65, where the minimum grant is $80.
As an interim measure, the Elderly
Citizen Renters Grant Act was reinstated
in 1975 to provide payment of an $80
grant in calendar year 1975 to renters
over age 65.
As of December 31,1975, 42,140
persons 65 years and over received the
$80 grant and resulted in a payment of
$3.2 million.
The renters' assistance program
payments since 1972 now total over
$16.3 million.

Comprehensive development:
• Burke Mountain—A new town is envisaged
for a 6,000-acre (2 430-hectare) site
between the Pitt and Coquitlam Rivers.    The
Department controls 2,600 acres
(1  053 hectares), including 1,030 acres
(417.15 hectares) of the Minn.ekhada stock
farm, which will supply the green belt and
open space for the new community.
The project will provide approximately 20,000
homes for 70,000 people with recreation
facilities, parks, schools, shopping, transit,
and other services for an urban environment.
A consortium of hydrologists, civil
engineers, environmental biologists, aquatic
ecologists, geologists, environmental resource
planners, and architects completed studies
on the fauna, flora, and aquatic life of
the area, the soils, hydrology, drainage, and
geology of the mountain slopes, the qualities
of various views, and the architectural
requirements of the building areas.    Four
architectural firms were retained to draw up
four separate plans for the development.
Their designs were submitted and evaluated,
but the awarding of the contract for a
master plan was deferred at year's end pending
the selection of the location of the new
regional town centre for the Coquitlam-Port
Coquitlam area.
• Riverview Development, west of Essondale
Hospital—3,300 units are planned for 500
acres (202.5 hectares) of which 314
