A six-story residential building, Eyuhwum officially opened on July 27th, 2022, providing 96 units of true affordable housing in the heart of Duncan.
The KDC entered into a limited liability partnership with WestUrban to complete the project at 300 Government St, and was privileged to have the opportunity to name the building. The name we chose, Eyuhwum, has deep meaning, as it is the name of the family that traditionally owned these lands,
Our roundtable members were actively involved throughout the construction phase, and one of our members came on board to gain their apprenticeship hours.
This beautiful building offers our members low-income options and housing to assist with the limited supply market. Eyuhwum is fully rented out, and currently has a waitlist.
This project is a perfect example of how industry collaboration with the Nation can benefit not just our own members, but the community as a whole.
The Eyuhwum family of Cowichan Valley, whom the building is named after.
