About the Project
BC Housing, Fraser Health, the City of Burnaby and community agencies recognize the need for more affordable housing throughout the Metro Vancouver region. In response, the City of Burnaby has partnered with BC Housing to develop this City-owned land for low-cost supportive housing.
Tenants are people over the age of 19 who live in Burnaby, who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, and who need additional support services to secure and maintain housing. Around-the-clock support is provided, with staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The housing is operated by Progressive Housing Society, an experienced and professional supportive housing operator. Their responsibilities include property management, operations management and tenant selection, in collaboration with BC Housing and community partners.
