The latest data release from Statistics Canada provides a breakdown of the number of single family houses, apartments and other types of dwelling units in Vancouver from the 2016 Census. As well, a breakdown of population by age was also published (the full list is available here).

The initial 2016 Census figures were released in February of 2017; further details are contained in our previous post: Vancouver population 631,486 in 2016 Census, and 25,502 unoccupied dwelling units .

Out of a total of 309,418 private dwelling units in the City of Vancouver, a total of 283,916 were occupied by usual residents. Out of the occupied dwelling units, a total of 41,330 single-detached houses were recorded. There were 83,250 apartments in buildings with 5 or more storeys. 91,385 apartments were in buildings with fewer than five storeys. The 2016 Census found 9,845 row house units, 4,480 units in semi-detached houses, and 635 ‘other single-attached’ housing units. Finally, 25 mobile housing units were recorded.
