Yew Wood Place

Yew Wood Place, formerly called Hemlock Place, is a proposal to build 17 affordable housing units at 609 Second Avenue in Daajing Giids. This property has been generously donated to our Society by M'akola Housing Society. It was previously occupied by a derelict duplex, an older mobile home and an abandoned vehicle. The Daajing Giids Heritage Housing Society (DGHHS) has been developing this proposal since January 2020.

The legal, hazmat and topographical surveys were completed in August 2020. The lot consolidation and rezoning plans, as well as the public hearings for the four lots, were completed in November 2020. In 2022, the uninhabitable duplex was removed, and the mobile home was gifted and moved to the new owner’s property. In January 2023, the entire site was cleared and levelled in preparation for construction.  Our Society has submitted a comprehensive funding proposal to BC Housing for their current intake of the Community Housing Fund, and are hoping for a positive response.


We are grateful for the support that we have received from Jennifer Rice, North Coast MLA, and from the Village of Daajing Giids.
