The Province has purchased Paul’s Motor Inn, located at 1900 Douglas St., to provide approximately 75 temporary homes with wraparound supports for vulnerable people experiencing homelessness in Greater Victoria.

Residents will be selected through BC Housing’s co-ordinated access and assessment process.

People living at the site will have access to services such as meals, health care, addictions treatment and harm reduction, storage for personal belongings and other supports. The site will feature 24/7 staffing to provide security to residents of the building and the surrounding neighbourhood.

Over the long term, BC Housing plans to redevelop the site into a range of affordable housing, the details of which will be determined through engagement with the community.

Community Advisory Committee

BC Housing will set up a new Community Advisory Committee that will oversee the supportive housing’s integration within the community and will address any concerns raised by people in the neighbourhood.
