Seniors Self-Contained Housing Program

BVRH operates 62 apartment-type units in Banff/Canmore to seniors of low income.

This program provides apartment type accommodation to low and moderate-income seniors who are functionally independent with or without the assistance of existing community based services. The tenant’s rent, which includes heat, water and sewer expenses, is based on 30 percent of a household’s adjusted income. Tenant’s are responsible for electricity, telephone and cable television, as well as any additional services they may request i.e. parking.

The province owns most of the apartments in Alberta under this program. Operating deficits are fully funded by the province through an annual budget process. Management and tenant selection are delegated to the local housing operators.

Senior citizens whose income falls below local limits (Core Need Income Threshold or CNIT) and who are functionally independent, with or without the help of existing community based services are eligible. Applicants are prioritized on the basis of need.
