B.C. buys land for Courtenay supportive housing

B.C. buys land for Courtenay supportive housing

COURTENAY, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia has purchased land in Courtenay, B.C. for proposed supportive housing and a permanent overnight shelter.

The province, through BC Housing, has finalized the purchase of 925 Braidwood Ave. in Courtenay for the eventual construction of supportive housing buildings with approximately 60 units, as well as a separate, permanent, purpose-built shelter with room for approximately 40 beds.

The buildings are also proposed to have additional space to be used as an extreme weather response shelter during cold weather.

“The existing lease for the Connect Centre has always been a temporary measure. The proposed development application for the newly purchased property will be a top priority for council and staff, and we look forward to working with BC Housing and social-service providers to address this significant need in our community,” Courtenay Mayor Bob Wells said in a statement.

BC Housing contributed $4 million to purchase the land through the Supportive Housing Fund and once Courtenay City Council gives its approval the site will be rezoned for the new proposed use. 

Construction is expected to begin in early 2025.
