Cool Aid Society is implementing the redevelopment of an existing supportive housing program at 210 Gorge Road East in the City of Victoria which will replace what is currently a 21 unit repurposed motel with a new 72 unit rental housing development. This project will offer a mix of studio, 1 and 2 bedroom units, as well as 6 accessible units. The building will feature amenities including a lounge/coffee bar and laundry facilities.

The Regional Housing First Program will provide financial and strategic support through its partners: the Capital Regional District (CRD), BC Housing, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Island Health. The Regional Housing Trust Fund Contribution is $600,000. Construction is expected to conclude and occupancy is planned for August 2022.
