Parksville Winter Shelter Opened on 01 November 2017

This nightly shelter is in a new location – 170 W Hirst Ave, Parksville.

  • It offers eight beds per night and is open from 6 pm to 8 am.
  • The essentials of life—a bed, bedding, meals, and hygiene supplies—will be provided.
  • Operating funding for 2017/18 is from BC Housing.


For the winter of 2016/17 the Parksville Extreme Weather Shelter provided temporary shelter to Oceanside residents (Parksville, Qualicum, Coombs, Errington, and surrounding areas). Originally opened as an extreme weather shelter in the fall, it expanded to daily operation thanks to community donations, volunteers, and the commitment of Oceanside HOST (Homelessness Outreach Support Team).
