LANGFORD – Construction is underway on 40 new homes for Indigenous families, individuals and Elders in Langford through a partnership between the Province, M’akola Housing Society and the City of Langford.

“Housing is the foundation on which people build their lives, and everyone in our community deserves a safe, secure and affordable home,” said Premier John Horgan, MLA for Langford-Juan de Fuca. “With these new homes, more Indigenous peoples in Langford will have the peace of mind that comes from having good housing in their community, surrounded by their friends, family and culture.”

Located at 731 Station Ave., Phase 1 of the project is complete and consists of 60 homes in a six-storey wood-frame apartment building. The building features a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments. Monthly rents range from $375 to $1,500 per month. Residents will begin moving in on July 15, 2020.

The ground floor of the building includes office space for two Indigenous non-profit societies: Indigenous development consulting firm M’akola Development Services, and Hulitan Family and Community Services Society. The latter offers culturally sensitive services and programs for Indigenous youth and families.
