Olympic Legacy Housing
The Province of British
Columbia and the
Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and
Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC)
partnered together to create an
Olympic legacy providing 156 permanent affordable rental
apartments for people most in need across B.C.
As part of this initiative,
temporary modular housing units from the Olympic and Paralympic
Village in Whister were reconfigured to convert them into
permanent, affordable apartments and relocated to six communities
across the province: Chetwynd, Chilliwack, Enderby, Saanich,
Sechelt and Surrey.
12 units: four ILBC assisted living + eight
has 33 units for homeless / at risk of homelessness
has 15 units for low-income seniors
has 36 units for homeless / at risk of homelessness
has 8 units for homeless / at risk of homelessness
has 52 units for seniors at risk of homelessness
The provincial government, VANOC and
local partners worked together to develop the design
specifications, and ensure that the design and
construction meet the high sustainability
standards necessary to promote energy efficiency and
minimize any environmental impact.
The Olympic Legacy Housing
sites are managed by non-profit providers,
and provide a safe, affordable housing
with support services for seniors
and individuals who are homeless or at risk.
