Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Independent Housing, Supportive Living and Assisted Living?

Independent Housing at Kiwanis Village is for independent seniors 55 and older who
require a rental subsidy. There are no services included in this type of housing, and
eligible residents generally pay 30% of their after-tax income.

Supportive Living at Kiwanis Village is for independent seniors 55 and older who are
able to pay privately for rent that includes hospitality services. These services
include daily dinner, weekly housekeeping and linen service, a full range of social
and recreational activities as well as 24-hour in-suite emergency monitoring.
Supportive Living does not include scheduled personal assistance services, which
must be arranged privately. Residents pay market rent for their apartment/services.

Assisted Living at Kiwanis Village is subsidized by Island Health. Island Health must
complete an assessment to determine eligibility based on health needs. The services

Are there additional costs?

  • Hydro
  • Telephone
  • Cable
  • Internet
  • Security Deposit
  • Additional meals not included with the rent

Can I see a suite?

To protect the privacy of our existing residents, we do not tour occupied suites. You
will tour a vacant unit when your name reaches the top of the waitlist. Each level of
housing and care has different types of floorplans including private rooms, studios,
one and two bedroom apartments. Images of our buildings are also available on our
website and at our monthly information sessions.

I have already applied; where am I on the waitlist?

For each level of housing and care, there is a different application and waitlist
process, some of which are held confidentially with BC Housing and Island Health.
Kiwanis Village cannot provide feedback on current waitlist placements or vacancy

What do I bring with me?

For all levels of housing, you will need to bring all your own furniture and personal
items to make Kiwanis Village your home. For complex care, rooms are furnished
with a bed, desk with drawers, a wardrobe and night table, but residents are also
encouraged to bring pictures and other personal items as well.

Do you have a bus or other transportation that can take me to personal appointments?

Kiwanis Village has a 15-passenger bus for group activity outings, which is not
available for personal appointments.
There is a bus stop at the entrance to the Village and also personal transportation
may be arranged through HandyDART. Bus passes and HandyDART tickets are
available for sale in our General Store.

Can I bring my pet?

Kiwanis Village encourages visiting pets, but live-in pets are not allowed.
