We have received an overwhelming but not surprising response for the new housing with SSCS, and the Housing Applications are now closed, we have received so many applications and thank you to everyone who took the time to apply to the new Spirit Creek Apartments.
We apologize as we will not be able to house all that have applied, and if you are not selected this time around, we will keep you on the call back list for future units as they become available in the future.
Spirit Creek housing offers will be sent to all successful applicants by end of July 2022. Thank you!
SSCS Housing Application Process – Applications open July 18, 2022
A BC Housing Registry number is required before applying. Please apply to the BC Housing website prior to submitting an application with us.

2. Applications must meet the program criteria established by the BC Housing operating agreements (ie. income levels) to be considered eligible.
3. All applicants must declare their income on their application and provide verification.
4. If an application is denied, the applicant will be informed in writing and their application returned or destroyed. Staff are not required to provide further information regarding declined applications.
5. If an application is accepted, the applicant must contact the Society at least once per year to confirm continued interest in housing and to update income, employment, or living situation information.
6. The Society generates an applicant list of active and complete applications from which tenants will be selected:
a. Below-market units: Housing offers are on a first-come, first-served basis in the order their application was added to the Applicant List.
b. Subsidized (Rent Geared to Income) units: Housing offers are made according to housing need (as per BC Housing scoring system) and selected by a Tenant Selection Committee.
7. Housing offers are in writing via email (unless no email is provided, then the offer will be by telephone).
8. Applicants have three business days to consider the offer before moving on to the next eligible applicant.
9. If an applicant refuses three housing offers, they will be removed from the Applicant List and asked to reapply in one year’s time.
