Are you a not-for-profit, social enterprise or artist struggling to find and maintain affordable space? We want to hear from you!

SPACE for COMMUNITY is a multi-year study seeking to understand the real estate challenges impacting your sector. The Social Purpose Real Estate Collaborative (SPRE) and the Real Estate Institute of BC have commissioned this study and SURVEY to get the facts that will help create actions for change.  The City of Vancouver is a member of SPRE

Join 1,000 respondents to make your experience with real estate known. The final date for participation is October 29. Results will be released via community events in key SPRE member communities in February/March/April 2021.

The survey will take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Speed the process with your facility information in hand.


Please consider sharing the SURVEY LINK with your networks and get them to help tell the story of how real estate affects your organizations and your work.
