More supportive housing is on its way to Prince George.

57 affordable rental units will be located at 1919 17th Avenue for families, seniors and people with disabilities.

According to the province, this is thanks to a joint effort with the Aboriginal Housing Society.

“These new homes mean that thousands of families, seniors and Indigenous people in our province will benefit from safe, new and affordable housing,” said David Eby, Attorney General and Minister responsible for Housing.

“These homes are among nearly 30,000 affordable housing units now completed or under construction across the province, building on significant momentum as we recover from more than a decade of underinvestment in housing by the former government. We are making good progress in resolving the housing crisis for all British Columbians, and much remains to be done.

As of March, a proposal to provide 50 additional housing units to homeless people at 855 1st Avenue is being developed between the city and the government of British Columbia.

More than 24 hundred new housing units are available to middle- and low-income people in 39 communities across the province.
