About Us

The Quesnel Lions Housing Society (QLHS) is a non-profit society created by the Quesnel Lions Club in 2012. QLHS’ mission is to respond to community need by establishing and maintaining housing and housing programs in the Quesnel area for the benefit of residents over the age of 60 years who are living independently, or other individuals as specifically directed by the Society. Many Lions Clubs in BC, across Canada and around the world have successfully developed housing projects for Seniors and others, so we have excellent models to learn from.

Our first project is the development of a non-profit apartment building in North Quesnel with up to 30 one bedroom units for independent Seniors. Our aim is to offer all of the units, or a majority them, at affordable rental rates. Check our Project Page for more information.

Once we have successfully launched the new building, we’ll investigate development opportunities for different types of housing options for Seniors.

Thank you!

We have been helped by many individuals and organizations. Without that help, we cannot be successful, and we deeply appreciate the assistance we’ve received.

Leadership

The QLHS is governed by a Board of Directors under the BC Societies Act. Board and committee meetings also benefit from participation by other volunteers from the Quesnel Lions Club.
