BC Housing will be redeveloping Harbour View Gardens in Prince Rupert in order to create more affordable housing for families and individuals.
About the Project
More affordable homes are planned for Prince Rupert. BC Housing and the Prince Rupert Indigenous Housing Society are working together to redevelop part of the Harbour View Gardens site.
Building a strong community plan for the area is important. BC Housing hosted events with the current Harbour View Gardens’ residents, neighbours and local community. These events provided information about peoples’ housing needs to create the site master plan.
The number of units has not yet been determined. The current buildings will be torn down and replaced with new homes. Construction will happen in phases.
Before construction starts, some current tenants will be moving to other homes. BC Housing is working with the M’akola Housing Society to help those tenants. BC Housing will help tenants with reasonable moving costs and fees.
Once construction completes, qualifying tenants will have the opportunity to return to the site, paying the same rent.
Tenant Open House: August 26, 2019
Drop by, enjoy some food and light refreshments, and talk to M’akola and BC Housing about the redevelopment plans for Harbour View Gardens, including tenant relocation principles.
Date: Monday, August 26 from 4:00-7:00PM
