It is one of 10 projects selected which will see 167 new affordable homes in the region.
“People living in the Columbia Basin, like the rest of the province, are feeling the weight of the lack of available, affordable housing,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “Our government recognizes the urgent need to create more options for people struggling to find reasonably priced rental homes. These new projects will help make life more affordable for families in the region by delivering the housing they need and can afford.”
The society applied for the funding in February for their proposed 21-until apartment building behind the ambulance service station in Southside.
