Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER)

The cost of housing can pose challenges to British Columbian seniors who often live on a fixed income. The Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER) program helps make rent affordable for seniors with low-to-moderate incomes.

SAFER provides monthly cash payments to subsidize rents for eligible B.C. residents who are age 60 or over and who pay rent for their homes. BC Housing provides SAFER subsidies to more than 17,000 senior households renting apartments in the private market, including singles, couples and people sharing a unit.
