The province says people have started to move into a redevelopment in Colwood aimed at affordable housing for families, seniors and people with disabilities.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Helios, with 82 new rental homes in the 2000-block of Sooke Road in the Colwood Lakes neighbourhood.
The province put up $8.4 million for capital funding and construction costs, with another $328,000 from Colwood and the land was provided by Pacifica Housing valued around $4 million.
The project replaced 12 ageing townhomes at the site.
The homes are intended for low-to-moderate-income households near schools, retail areas and transit.
Homes range in size from studios to three-bedroom units, and rent starts at $862 per month to $1,570.
The redevelopment is one of many around the capital region in an effort to address affordable housing.
On Friday, the city of Victoria announced $1.8 million towards two affordable housing projects.
