VRS’s newest independent living community “Timberline at North Park” in the heart of beautiful Port Alberni has broken ground, and is coming along nicely as construction is underway. 

At Timberline, combined rents and full seniors services, which include (meals, housekeeping and recreation) start from only $2500 per month for a studio suite, starting at $3000 for a 1 bedroom suite and starting at $3600 for a 2 bedroom suite. The Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER) program also helps make rents affordable for BC seniors with low to moderate incomes. SAFER provides monthly cash payments to subsidize rents for eligible BC residents who are age 60 or over.

VRS continues to work with BC Housing in support of all available housing grant subsidies benefiting our seniors population. As grants and special subsidies become available from BC Housing, VRS directs those funds to delivering additional levels of affordability to those most in need.
