65th Anniversary Story Contest

Share Your Stories about the Greater Victoria Housing Society and Win a $50 Buy Local Gift Certificate!

Celebrate with us as GVHS turns 65 years old this year! Share your memories – a note, story, photo, or art work – and help us tell the story of our first 65 years serving Greater Victoria. All entrants will be entered to win a $50 gift card to spend at a local business!

What are your favourite memories of GVHS?

Together, let’s tell the story of the impact that GVHS has had in the community. From its humble start as a single 26-unit building for seniors in 1956, GVHS now provides over 900 high-quality, affordable homes for low to moderate-income families, seniors, working singles, and adults with disabilities. And growing!

Are you a current tenant? What does GVHS mean to you today? What should we be celebrating the most in this special anniversary year?

Did you live in a GVHS building in years past? What was your favourite memory? Tell us about the impact that affordable housing had on your life.

Have you worked at GVHS, or served on the Board over the years? What stories do you have to tell about the work that we do?

Are you a neighbour of GVHS? What have GVHS buildings brought to your community?

We want to hear your stories.

Help us to celebrate the past 65 years, and build excitement for the next 65.

Our future looks bright.
