Serving their sacrifice – a first-of-its-kind residential and community development is on the rise in Surrey, British Columbia, on the property of the Royal Canadian Legion Whalley Legion Branch 229. The Legion Veterans Village aims to combine affordable and market-rate housing with a Legion branch and a range of physical and mental health services to serve veterans and first responders.
As D-Day ceremonies captured attention June 6, veteran members at two of the 28 Royal Canadian Legion branches in Metro Vancouver were celebrating joint venture real estate deals that will improve facilities and provide a mix of affordable and market housing.
The ground officially broke today on a first-of-a-kind facility in Canada that will provide post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mental health services to veterans of the Canadian Forces and first responders. The $312-million Legion Veterans Village is being built at 13525 106 Avenue in Surrey, replacing Whalley Legion Branch 229
