Monday, May 25, 2020
Victoria, BC – GSL Group, the developer and operator of the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre has announced that the transition from arena to Emergency Response Centre (ERC) has created employment opportunities for over 40 Individuals to meet the needs of the centre.
The positions were necessitated due to the opening of the ERC and are in the areas of health services, outreach/housing services, maintenance, catering, security and janitorial services. Many of these individuals were able to return to work to prepare the arena for their new residents at the end of April, and the remaining staff began their tenure at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre when the ERC opened its doors last week. Several of the individuals who are now employed at the ERC had been previously impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The temporary emergency response centre at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre is operated as a partnership between BC Housing and PHS Community Services Society. The arena can house 45 people in pop-up pods that provide each individual with a bed and privacy screens. Each person also has access to healthy meals and hygiene facilities. The arena began housing individuals, referred by Island Health and BC Housing, on May 13th.
