District of North Vancouver – East Keith Road

Street View with pin marking location of project


BC Housing and the District of North Vancouver are proposing to build 65 new homes with support services in the 1200 block of East Keith Road. These new homes are an important part of our effort to address and prevent homelessness on the North Shore.

The homes would be for adults, seniors and people with disabilities, with a priority for people in the local community. Project highlights include:

  • All units would be studio apartments with a private bathroom and kitchen.
  • All the homes would include support services such as daily meals, life and employment skills training and connections to health care and other community services.
  • At least 5% of the homes will be fully wheelchair accessible, with all homes designed to be universally adaptable to residents of all abilities.
  • The building will also include amenities such as shared laundry, a dining area, program space and parking.

Complex Care Housing

Five units in this building would offer Complex Care Housing services. Through this program, Vancouver Coastal Health and Lu’ma Native Housing Society would jointly offer person-centered health and social services to select residents. Complex Care Housing provides individualized care and culturally safe services that could include primary health care, psychiatry, family and peer supports and more. This program gives many people an even better chance at successfully moving out of homelessness and into healthy, stable lives.

Rezoning and Development

The District of North Vancouver and BC Housing are proposing to rezone this site for residential use. As part of the rezoning process, District Council will hold a public hearing tentatively scheduled in November 2023.

Non-Profit Operator

BC Housing selected Lu'ma Native Housing Society through a fair and open process to manage this building and provide services to the residents.

Lu’ma brings over 40 years of experience managing affordable housing while offering a wide range of programs, services and initiatives that aim to alleviate poverty and improve the overall health of the urban Indigenous community. (While Indigenous cultural services will be available, residents are not required to be Indigenous.)

Neighbourhood Information Sessions

Additional sessions scheduled due to community interest:

A caring community can contribute greatly to the success of supportive housing residents. We commit to keeping lines of communication open throughout this project, answering questions, and addressing any concerns. We will also share direct contact information for the housing when it is available.
