I want information about subsidized housing for seniors

BC Housing is a provincial government agency that offers subsidized housing. There are also programs that can help seniors who own their home, such as programs that offer property tax grants and deferments. As well, there are programs that can help pay for changes to a home to make it more accessible.

Good starting points include:

  • When I'm 64: Services, from People's Law School, has a section on "Housing." It covers housing benefits available to you if you are renting or you own your home.
  • I Am a Senior in British Columbia, from the federal government site Canada Benefits, has links to housing information.
