We encourage eligible prospective future tenants to complete an application so that we have a healthy list of people we may call on when an apartment comes available. Sometimes there is only a short turnover time to decide who will be the next tenant and we may not be able to wait for an application to be received before making our decision. Instructions for completion are included in the application package.
Often people are curious about the criteria for tenancy at Passmore Lodge. You must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, have lived in BC for the last 6 months, and be 55 or older for Passmore Lodge. The age requirement does not apply to people with disabilities.
We do place importance on a person’s ties to the Slocan Valley, family and friends. However, that is not the sole criteria. We also consider need, health and other factors. Most importantly a person must be able to live independently in our units. Of course, as with other renters anywhere, they can bring in home support or other support workers at their own cost.
