    Vancouver has been crowned the loneliest and most unaffordable city in Canada. While many Vancouverites struggle with these issues, a growing number of people are turning to collective living. Coliving has been around for generations, but it's recently been reinvigorated by the popularized sharing economy. In this housing model, residents share living space, interests and common values. BETTER TOGETHER delves into this subculture by vignetting some of Vancouver’s most established collective houses - from a mansion, to a multigenerational home. We'll discover how this lifestyle is a community-minded solution to Vancouver’s loneliness epidemic and inflated housing market.
