Sunshine Coast Affordable Housing Society has been working with the Town of Gibsons and they hope to add more affordable housing here.

Matt Thomson, volunteer executive director for the society points out they’re not solely focusing on low income families and people who live in subsidized housing.

Thomson recognizes there are organizations out there, who want to help with affordable housing, but they have a different strategy.



Last week they looked over a few potential sites for these projects and Thomson pointed out Charman Creek Lands would be ideal. The Town of Gibsons has also suggested a six different lands throughout Gibsons that could be appropriate for the project.


If does get approved, and once the building permits are obtained, there’s a potential that they could start construction by late summer, or fall.
