Senior citizens whose income is not sufficient to rent private sector accommodation and are functionally independent (with and without community-based services).
Eligibility is determined after completion of our senior housing application and a personal interview.
Based on a point-scoring system set by the Government of Alberta, placement on an eligibity list is determined by need rather than date of the application.

Rent in seniors self-contained apartments is based on a rent-geared to income (RGI) formula. This means that rent is based on a percentage of the tenant’s adjusted income. In the case of a couple or two persons sharing a seniors self-contained apartment, the rent is based on the combined incomes of both. Rent is calculated at 30% of total gross income from all sources with a maximum rate approved by the Governing Board (subject to review).
