The Province, through BC Housing, has purchased the 80-room Ramada Inn Hotel at 435 West Pender as part of a long-term plan to provide safe homes with supports as BC Housing and the City of Vancouver take collective action to address the critical needs of people experiencing homelessness in Vancouver.

The supportive housing services to be provided will include supports such as meals, connection to health services, income assistance and other client focused services. A tenant support worker will be hired to work with tenants individually on life skills and future planning. The property will have 24/7 staffing to provide security to residents of the building and the surrounding neighbourhood.
