Tenant Advisory Committee

The CRD Tenant Advisory Committee was established in 2018 to support communication between the Capital Region Housing Corporation (CRHC) and its tenants. Eight members of the committee are tenants of CRHC, and one will serve as Co-chair, along with the Chair of the CRD’s Hospitals and Housing Committee. Meetings are held 4 – 8 times per year. For information on meetings, or to bring an issue to the committee, please contact Colleen English.

Complex Focus: Viewmont

In Tenant Updates we will now be featuring news from our complexes. This time, Viewmont. They held a community barbecue with food from the tenants and a small contribution from CRHC. A resident of Viewmont told us, "The BBQ was a great success and attendance was 13! That's half the building in attendance. The vibe was very uplifting, cheerful and a sense of grateful giving. On top of what was provided, a Greek salad, lemonade, salsa and chips and a cheesecake homemade was added to the menu. The weather had been rain except for the hours I set up, had the BBQ, and clean up was all dry! Everyone pulled together to clean up and all was well."

Have a look at The City of Victoria's website for some great ideas and resources for bringing your community together. Or talk to Kate Lambert via email or call 250.360.3376 about events your complex would like to put on.
