Victoria Supportive Housing

Example of modular-style supportive housing building in a community setting, with trees. Street view.

Photo is an example of a modular style supportive housing building located in Vancouver.

BC Housing is committed to helping address homelessness in Victoria in partnership with the City of Victoria, Island Health, and local housing and service providers. Now more than ever we understand the importance of housing – COVID-19 has clearly illustrated that we all deserve a home, and we all need to work together. There are a number of new homes with supports in proposal, in addition to COVID-response temporary housing.

Building homes with supports is an important step to transition people from living outdoors or in shelters, towards more independent housing. The goal of supportive housing is to help people achieve and maintain housing stability. In our experience, building supportive housing in a community has benefits not only for the new residents of the building, but for the community in general. People living in supportive housing use ambulance services and hospital less. People are happier, healthier, able to engage in employment, reduce substance abuse, increase in safety/social connection. They spend money in the community. Every dollar invested in supportive housing equals $4 to $5 dollars of social and economic value created in community. Learn more.
