The City of Victoria plans to lease a vacant City property located at 1240 Yates Street to BC Housing and Our Place to operate an emergency winter shelter, for four months. Work is underway to open the shelter the first week of January.

This community meeting will provide an opportunity for residents and neighbours to learn more about the shelter operation and share thoughts or concerns so they can be addressed. Representatives from the City of Victoria, BC Housing, and Our Place will be present. A neighbourhood agreement and committee will be established based on the ideas and input of the neighbours and operators on how the temporary shelter can be provided while minimizing impacts to the neighbourhood.

Community members who are unable to attend the meeting are encouraged to share their ideas, concerns, questions or thoughts in writing to
