New Supportive Housing
Supportive Housing for People At Risk of or Experiencing Homelessness
As part of its response to homelessness, the Federal and Provincial Governments have committed to creating new supportive housing units in Surrey. The units address the city’s urgent need for housing with supports for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Surrey is in a housing crisis and over 600 people across the city are experiencing homelessness.
The City is partnering with the Province of BC, the Government of Canada and non-profit housing providers to develop several new supportive housing projects.
