The City of Victoria has voted to contribute funding to an affordable housing development in Saanich.

Charity might begin at home, but it apparently doesn’t stop at Victoria’s municipal boundaries. In what is being heralded as a local first, the city will contribute $112,000 to an affordable housing project to be built at 3211-3223 Quadra St., just north of Tolmie Avenue in Saanich, near the Victoria border.
