Financial details

Q: Are subsidies available for low-income households?

A: No.  But we are able to offer some units at below market housing charges. See Housing charges page for more details. Right now, only 2-bedroom units at market rates are available for new members.

Q: Will my housing charge go up, even if I am in a below market unit?

A: Yes. The housing charge will go up as required by the operating agreement with the City.

Q: If I receive a subsidy through BC Housing can I transfer to the co-op?

A: No. The Southeast False Creek development and Athletes Village Housing Co-op is not in BC Housing’s portfolio. The below market housing charges are possible for some of the suites because of an investment by the City of Vancouver.

Q: If I’m a senior am I still eligible for SAFER?

A: No. As a member of a housing co-op you do not meet the eligibility requirements for SAFER.
