Site Information

Address: 8120 93 Street NW, on the northeast portion of the site

Operator: Bissell Centre

King Edward Park is a 34-suite building and the first of five new modular supportive housing sites developed in collaboration with Homeward Trust, with funding support from the Government of Canada’s Rapid Housing Initiative and the City of Edmonton. 

The first 15 residents began moving in over a three-week period in the fall of 2022, while the remaining units will be occupied over the following two months. Bissell Centre is currently planning an open house and developing a Good Neighbour Plan. 

Each unit has furniture and appropriate mobility and accessibility adjustments. Units come with basic furnishings, including tables, chairs, couches, TVs and beds. Residents are given choices around other basic amenities to help them determine how their new home looks and feels. 

Moving into supportive housing is a gradual process as each resident has specific needs. Homeward Trust and the Bissell Centre are working together to ensure a safe and smooth transition.
