YWCA Canada Way Burnaby


Status: in development

We are partnering with Cindy Beedie, BC Housing and the City of Burnaby to develop 56 two- and three-bedroom units in Burnaby. This new YWCA housing community is in an excellent location near BCIT and close to buses, parks and schools and will provide much needed new housing for low-income single mothers and their children in the community. The new building will also include a child care centre on the ground floor.

We will begin taking enquiries and applications six months prior to the anticipated opening.
