Annual Gala

We regret that due to COVID19 we have decided to postpone our event scheduled for November 21, 2020 until November 20 , 2021. This is unfortunate as it is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We hope that by then COVID19 will be behind us.

Development Permit Approved

On March 24, 2020 the RDN approved our Development Permit application, bringing us one big step closer to putting shovels in the ground to begin construction on Lighthouse Villa. We are now working on finalizing our lease, preparing documents to go to tender, putting the finishing touches on our drawings, and collaborating with BC Housing
