Kaslo Gardens Housing Co-op Overview

As of May 2019, we are accepting applications only from applicants who are eligible for housing subsidy. Our market waiting list remains closed.

The Waiting Lists

  • Our subsidy waiting list application is open. Please review the current housing charges table to see if you are eligible. If your household income is lower than the gross annual income listed in the table, you are invited to fill out an application here.
  • Our market waiting list is closed indefinitely. Please review the current housing charges table. If your household income is higher than the qualifying gross annual income listed in the table, we will not accept your application.
  • The length of our waiting list varies according to the number of people applying, and the number of people moving out of the co-op, both of which are greatly affected by the availability of affordable housing in Vancouver.
  • It is impossible for us to predict how long it will take before we call you for an interview.
  • Regretfully, it is also not possible for us to update you on your position on the waiting list.
  • If you wish to remove your name from our waiting list, please contact us and provide your full name and contact information.

Acceptance into Kaslo Gardens Co-op

  • Prospective members are interviewed by the Kaslo Gardens Membership Committee and recommended to the Board of Directors for final approval.
  • When applicants are being considered, no discrimination is allowed on the basis of race, colour, sex, or creed. Because of city by-laws, there is a limit to the number and size of pets allowed in the co-operative. Pet owners are required to present certificates of neutering/spaying with their application form.
  • A member must meet financial requirements, be of legal age, and agree to sign required documents. As a member, you will be required to join a committee or the Board of Directors.

What is the Share Purchase?

  • For all members, the share purchase is $1,800 and is payable by certified cheque or money order. We cannot accept personal cheques or credit cards. Share funds may be used by the co-op to pay for items which are not included in the mortgage, due to government-imposed cost limits.
