Vancouver Coastal Health has confirmed that discussions are underway between the Sechelt First Nation and Trellis Seniors Services for a location to build a new residential care facility on Sechelt lands.
The trio of organizations, including Trellis President Mary McDougall say the conversation began with the First Nation after the District of Sechelt delayed the project…..
The exact location cannot be confirmed at this time because of the status of negotiations but, if successful, construction of the 125-bed care home will start in time for a completion in late 2019.
Trellis entered into an agreement with VCH in June 2016 to build a care home as a replacement for the aging Totem Lodge and Shorncliffe.
