The Legion Veterans Village, a multipurpose housing development in Surrey, includes on-site clinics for veterans and first responders focusing on PTSD and mental health, as well as mixed medical and rehabilitative services.
A first-of-its-kind facility in Canada for Canadian Forces veterans and first responders officially opened in Surrey City Centre earlier this week.
About 100 affordable rental homes are now open in Surrey for veterans and first responders.
It is a Royal Canadian Legion like no other. A new Veterans Village has been unveiled in the heart of Surrey. In addition, to close to 100 social housing units, it will feature a research facility inspired by a wounded B.C. war vet. Kristen Robinson explains.
Whalley’s new Legion isn’t open for business just yet, but people are keen to see the brighter, more modern and versatile space.
A new $312 million Legion Veterans Village in Surrey will provide 91 new affordable rental homes, a state-of-the-art Legion branch and a clinic dedicated to serving veterans and first responders.
The Legion Veterans Village Research Foundation is pleased to announce the official grand opening of the Legion Veterans Village (LVV), a unique $312-million multi-purpose social infrastructure project led by the BC/Yukon Command of The Royal Canadian Legion, together with Whalley Legion Branch 229 and Lark Group in Surrey B.C. The project features a first-of-its-kind Centre of Clinical Excellence in veteran and first responder health, a new Whalley Legion, as well as 91 affordable housing units owned and operated by VRS Communities, and 171 market housing units in phase one of the overall development.
