Cortes Community Housing: It Takes a Community to Raise a Village

Registered Name: Cortes Island Seniors Society

Business Number: 118877224RR0001

Together, we are fulfilling the dream of affordable stable year-round rental housing for community members of all ages. The Cortes Island Seniors Society has purchased a 51 acre parcel close to downtown Mansons Landing. 

In the first phase of development we will expand the existing Senior’s Village to include an additional four cottages.

Thereafter, the clearest already identified need through multiple housing surveys and public input, is for rental homes of various sizes for seniors, singles and families, which may be built on a modest 6 acre portion of the 51 acres, leaving a large parcel, which if planned well, could be enough land to address much of our community’s housing needs for years to come.

Your donation will help to fulfill the dream of creating affordable stable year-round rental housing for community members of all ages.
