New Westminster was quick to jump on the provincial government’s plan to create more housing in British Columbia.

The province is providing about $6.5 million to build 41 new modular homes for women who are experiencing homelessness. The project, which will be located on a city-owned property on Ewen Avenue in Queensborough, will also provide tenants with 24-7 support services, including meal programs, life-skills training and health and wellness supports to help them overcome challenges to maintaining their housing.
