About Us

Founded in 1956, the Greater Victoria Housing Society is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing affordable rental housing for low-to-moderate income families, seniors, working singles, and adults with diverse abilities who live independently.

We believe that safe and affordable housing is essential to a person’s well-being and a foundation for success in life. We imagine a community where everyone feels at home, where everyone has a home.

"I’m on disability and without the society my life would be incredibly less stable. It allows me some semblance of stability and security, having a home to myself. This is the most profound result of the society, people on the margins having a home they can afford."
