Salt Spring Commons

July 20, 2020

Salt Spring Commons is a new, family-focused neighbourhood on Mount Belcher near Ganges Village. The neighbourhood consists of 24 rental townhomes with a shared Common House, play spaces, gardens, food growing areas and forested walking trails.

The neighbourhood is owned and managed by Salt Spring Island Community Services (SSICS). Townhomes will be rented to families with children who are struggling to find long-term housing on Salt Spring Island. The three- and two-bedroom townhomes will be affordable (30% or less of combined annual household income) to qualifying families earning between $30K – $75K per year. Rents are expected to range between $600 to $1500 per month.

Core capital funding for Salt Spring Commons was provided by BC Housing and local, private donors. Early predevelopment work was funded with assistance from the Vancity Community Foundation and CMHC.  Heat pumps to increase the energy efficiency of each unit were funding through a grant from the CRD.

Salt Spring Commons will be available for in late 2020. Please contact Annika Lund at Community Services if you are interested in renting at Salt Spring Commons: alund@ssics.ca
