Kwayatsut is a multi-unit social housing development with ancillary support services and amenity spaces supporting youth at risk, combined with secondary use, commercial leased spaces. Constructed as part of BC Housing’s Provincial Homelessness Initiative (PHI) program. PHI was developed to provide long-term housing in the form of compact self-contained residential suites to help people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness move toward more secure housing, gain greater self-reliance, and achieve appropriate employment. The project is pursuing a Gold certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program and is a participating project in the BC Hydro Power Smart New Construction Program.
