Located at West Saanich Road and Quadra Street in Saanich, Rosalie’s Village consists of 42 units in three buildings and includes two-bedroom units for single mothers with children, one-bedroom units for women at-risk, a housemother unit, and three emergency shelter units.

The overarching goal of Rosalie’s Village is to support tenants to establish a plan for independence, and transition them to appropriate long-term housing.

M’akola oversaw all aspects of the project scope, including a feasibility analysis and business plan, funding applications, development approvals, capital and operating budgets, planning and design and risk and contract management. M’akola has continued to support the project through to one-year warranty.
