Tillicum Lodge is situated in Victoria, BC, Canada on Vancouver Island. Opened in 1972 originally as a facility for low-cost sheltered housing for Seniors, in 1978 it was designated as a Long Term Care Facility. Shortly thereafter, it was deemed to not meet minimum requirements for Long Term Care and the process began to find another location and move the lodge. In April of 1995, the new facility was opened and the residents of Tillicum Lodge were transferred. Since then, the facility has remained closed. Camosun College now owns the land and facility and has been struggling with financial issues and a vision for using this space. In the meantime, it sits abandoned and closed for over 17 years.
