Brightside’s priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our residents and staff. We are actively responding to the recommendations from the Provincial Health Officer. We are also in regular communication with BC Housing and are following or exceeding recommended best practices.
We thank all of our residents and partners for your cooperation in protecting our communities.
We will keep you updated regularly through this website and direct resident communications, as needed. We will also provide information about programs and resources that may be available to you from other organizations.

What can you do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19?
We urge all residents to take the necessary precautions to stay well and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In keeping with advice from health and public authorities, there are some important precautions we encourage our residents to take to ensure their own health and safety, as well as that of others in our community:
- Frequent, thorough hand washing is essential. Use soap and warm running water. Be sure to wash your hands for at least 20-30 seconds.
- Be sure not to touch your mouth or face until you have washed or sanitized your hands.
- Voluntary self-isolation and social-distancing are the best methods for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Even if you are not sick, you should stay at home.
