73 new affordable rental homes for Indigenous people coming to Surrey

The federal and provincial governments are partnering with Kekinow Native Housing Society and the City of Surrey to build 73 new affordable rental homes for Indigenous people.

The new building, named “Sohkeyah” (meaning Robin’s Nest), is the first of a two-phase redevelopment that will replace 33 existing three-bedroom townhouse units with 176 new rental homes for low-income Indigenous people.

“When complete, this first phase of development will bring 73 much-needed affordable rental housing units to Surrey—a new place to call home for Indigenous families in this community,” said Sukh Dhaliwal, Member of Parliament for Surrey-Newton.

Phase one will include homes of varying sizes from studios to two-bedroom units to meet the needs of the community. Rents are projected to range from approximately $550 to $1,300 per month.

“The comprehensive redevelopment of Kekinow Native Housing Society’s affordable rental housing project in Surrey is yet another example of Kekinow’s diligent efforts to ensure residents on limited incomes are given the best chance to thrive and reach their full potential,” said Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner.
