Burnaby city council helped officially open New Chelsea Society’s new location at the Glenlyon Business Park last month.
The non-profit society provides affordable housing for families and seniors. It currently owns and operates 20 properties across the Lower Mainland and it has plans to open a new project on Southwest Marine Drive in 2021.
While the society moved into its new digs in January, it waited until April to hold an open house to celebrate the move.
The festivities included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Burnaby Mayor Mike Hurley and city councillors Joe Keithley, James Wang and Paul McDonnell. Burnaby-Edmonds MLA Raj Chouhan was also in attendance.
“Having this wonderful office in Burnaby from where we can carry on our vision, mission, and mandate, will ensure that for many years to come, New Chelsea Society will be able to fulfill our commitment to the citizens of Burnaby as well as those citizens throughout the Lower Mainland who are in need of an affordable place to live,” said New Chelsea CEO Patrick Buchannon in a statement.
