Gabriola Housing Society’s vision is “affordable, comfortable, secure rental housing for Gabriolans of all ages who have low to moderate incomes”.

After several years of research into what was needed and who might help, in 2019 we received a donation of suitable land on Paisley Place near the village centre. Gabriola’s Trustees have almost completed the approval process for the bylaw changes to allow 24 homes in two clusters of triplexes on the land. The Housing Agreement bylaw that determines details of tenancy eligibility is also nearing completion.

The result of our application to BC Housing for major funding will be known in June, but we will still need community support – your support – to achieve this desperately needed housing.
