About the Project

BC Housing recognizes that there is a need for more affordable housing for families and singles in Prince Rupert. We want to create a long-term plan to redevelop Harbour View Gardens, to replace, expand and revitalize the affordable housing stock in our community. Due to the age and condition of the site, many of the buildings are starting to require extensive and costly repairs.

BC Housing is starting a Master Planning process which will take a number of years to plan, design and achieve approvals. The physical construction will be done in phases. As part of the planning process, we will be reaching out to Harbourview residents, neighbours and the community to gather input, ideas and feedback to inform the Master Plan.

M’akola currently operates Harbour View Gardens and is a direct contact for tenants. During the redevelopment process, M’akola will work with tenants on relocation plans, according to tenant relocation principles.

Harbour View tenants will be consulted about their housing needs and moving requirements, well in advance of any need to move. Every effort will be made to match available rental units with individual needs. Eligible tenants will have the opportunity to return to the site at the same rent arrangements. Reasonable costs for moving and utilities reconnection will be covered by BC Housing.
