BC Housing currently owns and operates the 244-acre site of səmiq̓ʷəʔelə. This includes all roads, utilities, and underground infrastructure (like a municipality). It also currently owns most buildings. To offset extensive costs to operate and maintain this site, BC Housing leases buildings to non-profits, commercial and government tenants.
BC Housing also generates revenue through film activity. The types of films allowed, and their content are regulated in a way that strives to respect the complex history of the site.
