Canada Mortgage and Housing and Victoria Women's Transition House Society Celebrate Refurbishments

Canada Mortgage and Housing (CMHC), a 65 year old national housing agency of Canada, and Victoria Women's Transition House Society (VWTHS), have feted the culmination of roof refurbishments at an emergency protection Transition House Shelter.

The Shelter meant for children and women who are subjected to family hostility in the Greater Victoria area was originally constructed in 1991 by utilizing the Project Heaven program of Canada and other grants and donations. The shelter offers round the clock services for children and women, which includes supportive counseling, child care, and transportation to appointments, emergency clothing and meals.

The VWTHS emergency shelter received $61,663 from the Shelter Enhancement Program (SEP) paid by the Government of Canada through CMHC. The program helps in fixing, restoring and bettering the existing shelters available for women and their children, men, youth or anyone who are subjected to family violence. The program also offers funding for the purchase or building of a second-stage housing or new shelters where required. The VWTHS facility currently has eight bedrooms to provide shelter up to a maximum of 18 women and children when the occasion warrants.

Earlier in July 2011, the territorial and provincial ministers who are in charge for housing have ratified a new framework accord for affordable housing for the balance of the three years of a five-year affordable housing commitment made by the government for over $1.9 billion in September 2008. As a division of the 2008 investment the federal renovation programs and affordable housing for low-income families were stretched for two more years with $60 million as government funding for British Columbia. The new accord contracted in July this year will extend $90 million in the form of federal funding to meet the housing need in British Columbia during the ensuing three years.
