Former hotel puchased in Campbell River to house residents displaced by a blaze

The provincial government has purchased a former motel in Campbell River to house residents displaced by a blaze that left 92 people homeless in that city in April.

BC Housing's purchase of the former Heritage River Inn will provide 41 units of stable, long-term, affordable rental housing for the low-income residents who escaped the fire.

Finding a home in the Campbell River area is challenging at the best of times but the COVID-19 pandemic has made the search even more complicated.

North Island MLA Claire Trevena says purchase of the old motel will provide security and peace of mind while the province works with its partners to build more affordable housing in the region.
