Phase II: Permanent Supportive Housing for Surrey
We would like to advise that the open house scheduled for September 20 at Pacific Community Church has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. At the City of Surrey’s request, BC Housing has withdrawn the application for supportive housing at 176A St and 58 Ave.
Community dialogues were held on September 10, 11, and 12 at the Pacific Community Church, Surrey. Participants learnt more about homelessness in Surrey and the proposal to build supportive housing in Cloverdale, as well as discussing the project with representatives from BC Housing, the City of Surrey, Fraser Health, and the future operator.

About the Project
Surrey is in a housing crisis and over 600 people across the city are experiencing homelessness. BC Housing, Fraser Health, the City of Surrey, and community agencies are working together to address the urgent need for housing with supports for people experiencing homelessness in Surrey.
Phase I: Temporary Accommodation Units
In the short term, the City of Surrey and BC Housing have partnered to open three sites in the City Centre area for short-term transitional accommodation units. Lookout Housing & Health Society is providing 24/7 on-site management at the following locations:
- Site 1: 10662 King George Blvd
- Site 2: 13550 105 Ave
- Site 3: 13425 107A Ave
This housing will be replaced by 250 units of permanent affordable housing once additional sites have been identified and the additional homes with support services have been built over the next few years.
Phase II: Permanent Housing with Supports
At the City of Surrey’s request, BC Housing is withdrawing the application for supportive housing at 176A St and 58 Ave.
Homelessness remains an issue in all areas of Surrey, including Cloverdale where there is a significant number of people who need a home with support services. We are dedicated to working with the City of Surrey and non-profit housing providers to create much-needed homes with the necessary supports for people who are experiencing homelessness. The City of Surrey has committed to bringing forward appropriate alternative locations to BC Housing this fall.
