Snow/ice conditions:

CRHC and CRD at Main Fisgard Entrance

Front reception has moved from the temporary location at the corner of Fisgard and Government to the new reception area at 625 Fisgard Street and is open from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm daily.

COVID Office Protocols

Our main reception will continue to be offered as shared space with the CRD. Housing’s reception will be able to receive payments, form drop offs and provide housing information.  Tenants wishing to meet with staff to discuss their tenancy, rent reviews and other tenant related matters are encouraged to book appointments. This will confirm that staff and meeting spaces are available. As the reception area has changed, it will not allow for informal discussions to occur at the desk.

If you require a face-to-face meeting, we recommend that you call or email the employee you wish to meet with to make an appointment. When you enter into the general office area, beyond the reception desk, you will be required to wear a mask and potentially sign in using our visitor tracking sheet. If you are unsure of whom to speak with please email crdhousing@crd.bc.ca and staff will direct your email to the appropriate staff person to respond to your query. An appointment can be made at that time, if required.

We are continuing to deliver essential services while following guidelines and orders set out by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and other governing bodies, including WorkSafeBC, and Island Health. For more about the CRD’s response to COVID-19 please visit www.crd.bc.ca/covid
