Central Saanich - 1909 Prosser Road

Infographic featuring community integration of supportive housing


BC Housing is working with the Capital Regional District to build approximately 39 new permanent homes with support services for people who are marginalized and experiencing homelessness in Central Saanich.

With this design, priority will be given to people at risk of homelessness in the Central Saanich region who need minimal supports and are ready to move to living independently; many of these people have been living successfully in temporary shelters.

This development is part of an ongoing commitment to build housing solutions for those in need and is one of six new projects that will deliver more than 280 permanent supportive homes for people experiencing homelessness across the Capital region.

Housing with Supports

Supportive housing is a self-contained studio home with various support services provided on-site, to help people achieve and maintain housing stability. Supports could include:

  • outreach workers
  • life skills training
  • employment assistance
  • connection and referral to community services and support groups.

Staff would be on-site 24/7 working with each resident to understand their needs and goals.

Applicants will go through an assessment process to make sure there is a mix of residents with the right supports. All residents will have an individual case plan and pay rent.

Development Process

1909 Prosser was successfully rezoned in 2018 to designate the lands multi-family residential and included a Land Use Bylaw amendment to rezone the land from the A-1 Agriculture zone to a multi-family residential zone (RM-5).

Community Dialogue Session

To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to learn more, ask questions and provide feedback about these homes with supports, we will be hosting three Community Dialogue Sessions as we share information about this project and how it will support people in the community who are at risk or currently experiencing homelessness.

These facilitated sessions will begin with a presentation to share information on the project, followed by a question-and-answer period.

Please sign up for one of the following sessions (space is limited):

April 26: 5:30-7pm
April 27: 2:30-4pm
May 4: 2:30-4pm

    G asked 18 days ago

    An operator will be confirmed at a later date, and they will be responsible for property and operations management, including 24/7 on-site staff to support residents, manage the building, and be available to respond directly to concerns in a timely manner. We will provide contact information for the operator when it becomes available. 

    Regular cleanups of the property and immediate area will ensure cleanliness, and a Community Advisory Committee will be created to support the successful integration of the new homes and residents into the community. 

    Please feel free to email communityrelations@bchousing.org if you have further questions.
