In 2017, Sanford Affordable Housing Society (SAHS) was incorporated as a non-profit society that focuses on developing and operating housing for singles and families who do not require support services, but who need safe, quality affordable housing at below-market rents.
With the addition of affordable housing projects like The BRice and the Kingsley Estates townhomes to our portfolio, SAHS was established to take on the management of existing and future affordable housing projects. Our partnership with Hollyburn Family Services Society on Oxford Street in the District of North Vancouver will be another SAHS project.
