RainCity Housing has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to change the use of this site to a “social service centre” and to operate it as a temporary winter shelter, including:


• 40 mats;
• Open 24/7;
• Two staff at all times;
• Three meals/day;
• Showers and health and housing services; and
• The shelter will open mid-November and close no later than the end of April 2017.


Under the site’s existing RM-4N, the application is “conditional” and the Director of Planning is prepared to exercise his discretion to issue the permit for this conditional use.

To learn more, a Community Dialogue will take place on:

November 7, 2016 between 6 – 8 pm
Wise Hall, 1882 Adanac Street

Please RSVP to housing@vancouver.ca
