Affordable Housing

Yellowhead Community Services Affordable Housing building was completed in August 2019 after more than five years of planning, collaboration and construction. Partners in our efforts to create this facility are the District of Clearwater and Wells Grey Community Forrest. Our first tenants moved in at the end of August and since that time we have been providing quality homes for residents of our Clearwater community.

The focus throughout was to create safe, economic and low maintenance homes, primarily for families but with some units for seniors or people with disabilities who can live independently. All applicants must be considered low-income; more information can be found at https://www.bchousing.org/glossary Families are considered to be a minimum of two people (one parent and a child under the age of 19 years). Parents who share custody are still eligible if they have care of their child for at least 40% of the time.

240 Park Drive is a four-storey building with elevator access to all floors, and is made up of a mix of bachelor, one, two or three bedroom units.  Free laundry facilities for residents are provided, many apartments having their own washers and dryers. Each unit has basement storage space, parking and a balcony. To support healthy independent living all units are equipped with an oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. In accordance with building regulations the entire building is hardwired with a fire alarm and sprinkler system.

An outside communal area has been landscaped with a children’s play area and picnic tables. An amenity room creates a shared space for tenant events such as barbeques, pot lucks and meetings. It is important for YCS that this building not only creates quality homes for tenants but also promotes social engagement with a neighbourhood feeling. All YCS properties are no-smoking/vaping.

Due to the central location of the building access to other community services is extremely convenient with medical; schools; grocery shopping; restaurants; retail; dental; Transit; child care; sports and library facilities all being within walking distance.

YCS delivers many programs in the North Thompson Valley and affordable and safe housing fits particularly well with our vision; to create a healthy community where everyone thrives.

We encourage you to contact our Property Manager if you would like more information and place your name on the wait list.
