We encourage applicants to apply to as many affordable housing providers as you can as early as you can. There are dozens of affordable housing societies and hundreds of affordable housing buildings in GVRD.
There are over 3,500 individuals and families on Lu’ma’s waitlist for housing with subsidy. People wait many years before landing housing with subsidy provided. To apply for housing with Lu’ma Native Housing Society at least fifty percent (50%) of the applicant’s family must be of Aboriginal ancestry. This includes First Nations, Aboriginal, Inuit and Metis persons who may be status or non-status.
Units available may be designated market or non-market units. Eligibility is evaluated on an individual basis through assessment of income, family size, health, current housing conditions, being a student etc.

Your application will be entered into the Wait List which is lengthy and constantly changing. Our Society does not provide emergency housing. Once you receive your Letter of Confirmation, you can contact Tenant Relations for an Interview Assessment. When a unit becomes available that fits your profile, you will be contacted.
If your address, family composition or income changes – then you must fill out an Application Update so we can keep your profile up to date and contact you when a unit becomes available.
