Building the Future

Healing Center

The Aboriginal Land Trust (ALT) is developing an Indigenous-led mixed-use development focused on serving Vancouver’s Urban Indigenous community in the Downtown Eastside in partnership with Lu’ma Native Housing Society and Raincity Housing.

Focused on serving the needs of Vancouver’s Urban Indigenous community in the DTES, the new building will include a Healing Centre operated by the Vancouver Aboriginal Health Society, 58 affordable rental units for Indigenous families with lower incomes operated by Lu’ma Native Housing Society, and 53 units of supported adult housing operated by RainCity Housing Society. The program incorporates spaces required to create a welcoming and supportive environment for Indigenous people and support culture and ceremonial practices for healing and daily life.
