Services and supports provided for modular housing

All new modular housing buildings in the province are being provided with around the-clock staffing to help youth, people with disabilities, seniors and others in critical housing need.

The Province is investing $170 million over three years to help those with the highest housing needs build new beginnings. Experienced non-profit housing providers will provide support to tenants based on their assessed needs.

The services and supports that will be provided to youth, seniors, people with disabilities and others who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless include:

  • meals;
  • connecting residents to community supports, such as education and employment opportunities, and health and wellness services;
  • individual or group support services, such as life skills, community information and social and recreational programs;
  • case planning and needs assessment;
  • other supports designed to assist residents in meeting their personal and housing goals, including culturally specific programs;
  • help accessing income assistance, pension benefits, disability benefits, obtaining a B.C. identification card or establishing a bank account;
  • support for residents to learn how to operate and maintain a home; and
  • no-cost laundry services, either on- or off-site.
