The Diocese of BC is re-imagining church property and its role in ministry. As properties are sold, a new future is emerging. "Based on that research, the diocese says it is moving forward with a plan to examine its Vancouver Island properties to see where other development opportunities might lie. One of its current projects is a seniors affordable living development in Esquimalt that is partially funded by BC Housing, said Peter Daniel, the asset manager for the diocese. Another will provide an additional 84 units of affordable housing for seniors and is under construction in Saanich."
