Affordable Rental Housing

Without housing, no one can thrive.  To support our community members and meet this important need, IWAV owns and operates two properties for rental housing.

The Cedars

The Cedars is a second-stage program that provides housing for people who identify as women (inclusive of cis, trans and non-binary women) and their children who are re-establishing themselves after abuse.

The Cedars has 7 units with a mix of 1 bedroom plus a loft, 2 bedroom, single loft and bachelorette suites in a central location. Tenancies are up to 18 months during which residents are encouraged and supported to heal and grow through access to IWAV programs.


To apply for The Cedars, email or call 250-931-2032.


Croftonbrook is a 5-acre property in the Ganges Village that is in walking distance to services, hospital, shopping and restaurants.  At Croftonbrook, IWAV provides affordable rental housing to low to moderate income seniors and people with disabilities who can live independently.

In summer of 2022, Croftonbrook was expanded to provide an additional 34 units of housing for people of all ages, including families. Croftonbrook has three phases of development and, by summer 2022, will have a total of 74 units. Croftonbrook is owned and operated by Islanders Working Against Violence.
