Funding for new shelters

The province is providing $1.5 million to fund four Vancouver seasonal shelters in early December.

The new shelters are add-ons to the supportive housing developments scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011, said Housing Minister Rich Coleman.

Shelter whereabouts have yet to be confirmed, but the city is looking at the same locations as last year — Kitsilano, Mount Pleasant, Northeast False Creek and the West End.
