Sustainable, modern living in Vancouver's urban core

Give Back Program


Gordon Nelson is pleased to announce a new program aimed at connecting tenants with their community by encouraging involvement in local organizations in need of support.  Four organizations have been chosen that are working in different ways to help make the West End and City of Vancouver a better place to live.  A rent reduction of up to $150 per year is available.

How it works…

You select an organization to volunteer with for a minimum of two hours once every four months.  You need to submit an online form, which can be found on our website, along with one photo (“selfie”) showing your participation in the event.  Once sent and verified, you will receive a $50 reduction in the following months rent.  Total annual reductions may not exceed $150 per unit.
