North Okanagan Seniors Housing Guide

NexusBC is pleased to compile and provide an annual seniors housing guide for our area that includes all the independent, assisting living and complex care facilities in the North Okanagan. There is also a detailed listing of senior-friendly apartments.

You can view the 46-page guide here: 2019 North Okanagan Seniors Housing Guide (pdf)

We also assist with:

Applications and Re-Applications for Shelter Aid For Elderly Renters (SAFER)

The SAFER program provides direct cash assistance for people age 60+ and who pay rent for their housing. SAFER is designed to help older British Columbians on fixed incomes pay for rent and leave them with enough money for the other necessities of life such as food, utilities and transportation. The Seniors Services Program is happy to you help you with SAFER applications and renewals.

Applications for Subsidized BC Housing

If you live in BC have a low income and meet eligibility criteria, you may qualify for subsidized housing. Subsidized housing is long-term housing for people who permanently reside in BC. Rental fees are calculated on a rent geared to income basis (30% of household total gross income, subject to minimum rent based on # of people).

You may be eligible for subsidized housing if you can live independently and meet the household, residency, income and assets criteria. 

The Seniors Services Program can help seniors 60+ with filling out an application to be on the BC Housing Registry.
