Fifty Women for SCCSS - An initiative of: Sunshine Coast Community Services Society

Vickie Morris

Retired Urban Planner and Community Developer

Vickie has been involved in ensuring that everyone has a secure, affordable home since the 1970s when she and colleagues at Coast Mental Health acquired their first apartment building for people leaving Riverview Psychiatric Hospital. Their belief in everyone’s right to live in the community with dignity in an independent living situation made that project the first of its kind in Canada.

Over her career she went on as a planner for the City of Vancouver, and as a Community Developer for Vancouver Coastal Health to work with many groups developing housing, childcare facilities, neighbourhood houses, and other essential elements of social infrastructure.

Since moving to the Sunshine Coast in 2014 she has volunteered with Community Futures, the District of Sechelt, Sunshine Coast Affordable Housing Society, and Gibsons Public Market, as well as consulting with Deer Crossing the Art Farm and the Sunshine Coast Art Council on various planning projects.

She is committed to ensuring that everyone has a safe, secure home, and that community groups have spaces that support community development and economic health and diversity. She is thrilled to join others to make the Building Together project a reality.

“Ensuring that everyone has a safe, secure, affordable home benefits everyone by unlocking all our potential. The Building Together Project will benefit everyone who lives, works, and plays on this beautiful coast.”
