CLBC announces second year of home sharing rate increases

Last year’s provincial budget included $9.5 million in new funding for home sharing providers in 2020/21. This will allow CLBC to increase home sharing rates for the second year, effective April 1, 2020.

Home Sharing Working Group Launched

CLBC and the BC CEO Network, together with the members of the BC Home Share Providers Association and the Central Okanagan Professional Caregivers Association, have come together to form a new Home Sharing Working Group. The Working Group is meeting every two months to find solutions for issues identified in a recent survey and small group discussions with home sharing providers. If you would like to receive updates about this work, please send an email to CLBCInfo@gov.bc.ca.

At the direction of Minister Simpson in early 2018, CLBC conducted a survey of home sharing providers and held small group meetings in different regions of the province to identify support needs. This feedback was summarized in the June 2018 What We Heard report.
