Other Gulf Island Projects

Communities large and small throughout southern BC are having trouble housing community members with low to moderate incomes. Housing needs assessments published by the Islands Trust in 2018 identified acute conditions for affordable housing throughout the Gulf Islands, southern and northern.

Several Gulf Islands organizations similar to Gabriola Housing Society are trying to find local solutions. Here are some links to their housing project websites:
