M’akola Housing breaks ground on a 36 unit housing project in Langford.

A new affordable housing complex is rising in Langford, adding options for First Nations families and others in need. Construction is underway at 550 Goldstream Ave., across from the Royal Colwood Golf Club, and is expected to be completed by February 2016. The property, owned jointly by M’akola Housing Society and M’akola Development Services, will provide 36 rental units at affordable rates. But there are more than 1,000 families in Greater Victoria on M’akola’s wait-list for housing, CEO Kevin Albers said.
