Why “The Confluence”?
Confluence: “a flowing together. In a literal sense, it is about rivers, but is more often used to talk about the coming together of factors, ideas, or cultures in a diverse city.” This name was chosen as we aim for the Confluence to be a building that brings together a diverse range of seniors and families, while also paying tribute to the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc lands and rivers.
When will construction start and when will the building open?
ASK Wellness Society and BC Housing are currently finalizing building design details and funding. BC Housing submitted a development permit application to the City with a preliminary building design on February 28th, 2023. Once all details are finalized, construction will begin.
