The Regional Housing First Program is an innovative partnership between the CRD, the BC Government and the Government of Canada to eliminate chronic homelessness and generate new rental housing options in southern Vancouver Island and surrounding Gulf Islands.

The program aims to meet a broad range of housing needs while moving at-risk individuals into long-term, tenant-based, supported housing to enable recovery and integration into society. The program avoids the need for dedicated support programs in specific locations. Instead, where required, flexible, mobile services will be delivered within the housing units located throughout the region.
