The Hogan’s Alley Society advocates for Black Vancouverites who have endured the legacies of urban renewal and their erasure from the official historical narrative.

Through our initiatives we hope to build the capacity of racialized and marginalized communities to participate in city building.


HAS is looking for community council members who will provide a community lens to support the initiatives of the Housing Solutions Lab. The Solutions Lab is funded by CMHC through the National Housing Strategy Solution Labs program. Our partners are the City of Vancouver, Wood Buffalo Strategy Group (WB Strategy), and BC Housing. The Solutions Lab aims to understand the housing barriers, and offer innovative solutions to securing safe, affordable, suitable, and accessible housing for Black Communities in Metro Vancouver.

Do you identify as a Black Person?
Do you have lived/living experience with precarious housing?
Are you interested in informing Housing Solutions?
Then you can be a part of our community council.

If interested, kindly complete this form. Only those selected will be invited for the info session. The deadline to complete the form is 11:59PM PST May 31.

We’re so proud of our Board Chair Dr. June Francis for being selected as one of Vancouver’s Power 50!
