Construction of the affordable rental housing development will generate about 77 jobs and is expected to commence in September with completion expected in April 2000. “Many low-income families in Williams Lake are struggling because they are spending more than 30 per cent of their income on rent,” said Zirnhelt. The HOMES BC funding announced today means we can help families in our community find good housing in their price range. After the development is open, BC Housing will provide the society with an annual operating subsidy.

VICTORIA — Twenty-eight independent living housing units will be built to replace the current west wing of the Rose Manor as part of BC Housing’s commitment to provide affordable and supportive housing in Victoria, Mike Farnworth, minister responsible for BC Housing, announced today. “This renewal project means Victoria’s seniors will have the ability to access on-site and in-home services that will allow them to age in place,” Farnworth said.
In addition to keeping Rose Manor safe and useful, the improvements will ensure the building remains an attractive historical landmark in the community well into the next century. The Pre Purchase Building Inspection 100-year-old building at 875 Rupert Terrace will have its west wing replaced as part of a new program to provide a mix of independent living with supportive housing for seniors. “This development, together with the new Mount StMary hospital across the road on the former Fairfield Health Centre, provides a continuum to serve the needs of the elderly in Victoria,” said Andrew Petter, minister responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission.
It also complements other provincial investments in the area, including the renovations of StAnn’s Academy. Rose Manor is one of a number of historically important buildings in our community that contribute to Victoria’s rich culture as a whole,:” said Gretchen Brewin, Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA. The next step in the restoration — building the new west wing — will give residents the option of aging in place in comfort and dignity. Phased construction of the project, developed in consultation with the Oak Bay Kiwanis Rose Manor Society, the non-profit agency that operates the facility, is scheduled to begin early next year.
