The temporary modular housing at 1131 Franklin St, Chartrand Place, has one building with 39 studio homes. All homes are self-contained dwellings with a private bathroom and kitchen. A total of seven homes are wheelchair accessible. 

This is a supportive housing building. BC Housing selected PHS Community Services Society as the non-profit operator for this site.

The building has been named Chartrand Place, after Michel Chartrand. He was a Downtown Eastside resident who was diagnosed with HIV early in the AIDS epidemic and lived longer than expected. Chartrand’s memory is a testament to how safe and stable housing can prolong the lives of people in ill health.
