Through BC Housing, the province is partnering with the city to provide 50 self-contained studio homes with the necessary supports to help people aged 19 years and older experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

The project will provide homes for those who will be living at the former Rose Bowl Restaurant bridge housing starting this month, as well as others experiencing homelessness.

Once the supportive housing project is complete and the bridge housing residents have moved in, the province says BC Housing is looking to redevelop the Rose Bowl site into an affordable housing project.

The Vancouver Island Mental Health Society will operate both the bridge housing and supportive housing buildings when completed.

Society staff will be onsite 24/7, providing guests with outreach services, such as daily living skills training and meal preparation, as well as referral to health services.
