Supportive housing is like independent living, but services are geared toward low-income seniors and are available through the Seniors’ Supportive Housing Program by BC Housing. The program provides housing and support services to older adults, seniors and people with disabilities.
Seniors supportive housing tenants generally pay 50 per cent of their gross income as rent. If you receive income assistance, have a very low income or have another agreement with your housing provider, you may be asked to pay a fixed amount instead.
Wait times for this program can vary and it’s difficult to predict when a suitable unit will become available. Interested applicants must apply through BC Housing.
