Housing & Homelessness

The City of Penticton is working with its partners, which include the federal and provincial governments, to achieve our community’s housing and homelessness goals. In April 2020, the City of Penticton entered into a three year memorandum of understanding with 100 More Homes – the lead group of community partners addressing housing and homelessness in Penticton.

As a partner of the 100 More Homes Collaborative, we are supporting the advancement of Penticton’s leadership with the North America-wide Built for Zero initiative, and in local partnership with HelpSeeker Technologies. In addition to our work with community partners, we have established opportunities to increase affordable housing stock, including adopting policies within the Official Community Plan (OCP) to support these efforts. This page outlines some of the recent initiatives and projects.

BC Housing Review

A review of supportive housing projects by BC Housing, released in May 2022, confirms the need for improved treatment and recovery services in Penticton as significant gaps remain that see people falling through the cracks.
