As part of government’s review of Crown corporations, the Province transferred a number of the key responsibilities under the Homeowner Protection Act. The transfer of the licensing, and research and education responsibilities of the Homeowner Protection Act to BC Housing provides the HPO with a more comprehensive infrastructure, an improved regional presence and additional synergies and efficiencies.

The Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) is a branch of BC Housing, a provincial Crown agency under the Ministry of Natural Gas Development. Minister Rich Coleman is the Deputy Premier and the Minister of Natural Gas Development and Minister Responsible for Housing.
