A new partnership will add housing options for women and children fleeing abuse and violence in Kitimat.
The project, which is funded through the province’s Building BC: Women’s Transition Housing Fund, is the result of a partnership between the Tamitik Status of Women’s Association, the Haisla Nation, and the District of Kitimat.
12 beds of transition housing and up to 10 beds of second-stage housing will be included in a new mixed use building.
The project will also bring up to 20 new affordable rental homes, including 10 accessible units for women and families in need.
Tamitik will be the operator of the unit, which is expected to see construction begin next spring.
