Campbell River supportive housing project information sessions set for Aug. 27th

If you’re hoping to learn more about the new supportive housing project planned for Campbell River, now’s your chance.

You’re invited to join panelists from BC Housing, the City of Campbell River, Vancouver Island Mental Health Society (VIMHS) and Island Health for one of two virtual information sessions.

The sessions are taking place on August 27th, with the first scheduled from 12:00pm to 1:00pm, and the second from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

“We welcome your feedback and it will be shared with the project team and partners to inform project planning,” BC Housing says.

Through BC Housing, the province is partnering with the city to provide 50 self-contained studio homes for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

BC Housing says it will lease a portion of the city-owned land at 580 Dogwood Street and VIMHS will manage the property while providing coordinated support services.

Construction is expected to begin in the fall.

“The development will house people in the recently announced temporary bridge to housing at the Rose Bowl Restaurant that will be opening this summer,” BC Housing adds.

“VIMHS will operate both the bridge to housing and the new supportive housing building, so strong relationships will already have been established with residents by the time they are transferred over to the new supportive housing building.”
