The Gorge View Society's mandate is to provide affordable housing for seniors who can live independently. For over 50 years it has progressively built 16 buildings and the Society now manages a 100 suites. The Gorge View Society is committed to a hands-on approach to management, and accomplishes this through its valued volunteers along with two part-time staff members in administration and maintenance.
With current government policies and more health providers supporting seniors in their homes residents are now staying in their suites well into their 80s and 90s. For the past five years, the Society has concentrated on upgrading and modernizing its suites to meet these new demands. Funding from CMHC in 2009 provided $420,000.00+ for upgrades in heating, insulation, exhaust fans and thermo pane windows to many of the units
