    BC Housing-City partnership bringing affordable housing for women, children to Campbell River

    The City and the Province, through BC Housing, are working together to create 55 new and much-needed affordable rental housing units for women and their children in Campbell River. The mixed-use building includes larger units for women and children, accessible units for senior women and a ground floor commercial space.

    The proposed apartments will be located on properties owned by BC Housing close to Rose Harbour, including a lot that the City donated to the project at 1180 Fir Street. BC Housing is providing approximately $19.7 million in capital costs for the project through the Women’s Transition Housing Fund, as well as an annual operating subsidy of approximately $550,000. The City is also making significant financial contributions by covering the cost of all City-related development fees and charges.

    “Council is very pleased to continue the partnership with the North Island Transition Society that created the vision for Rose Harbour in 2012 and now provides more affordable and diverse housing options in Campbell River. Our strong relationship with BC Housing and community partners is helping to deliver safe, affordable rental housing that’s in high demand,” said Mayor Andy Adams. Read more...
