Senior Self-Contained Program

We manage and maintain self- contained apartments on behalf of the Province of Alberta.  These units are for independent low-income senior individuals or couples, 65 years and older. Applicants are prioritized on the basis of need, as determined by income ( Income Threshold), assets and current housing conditions.
These units are 1-bedroom apartments.  The amenities noted in the Lodge Program above are not provided in these facilities. The monthly rent is based on 30 per cent of the household’s gross income up to a maximum rental cap of $750.00 (1 bedroom), $800.00 (2 bedrooms). (The rental cap is reviewed by the Foundation on an annual basis and is subject to change). Rent includes a fridge, stove, heat and water.  Tenants are responsible for power, cable and phone.

Rent Supplement Programs

Rental Assistant Benefit (RAB):
A subsidy is paid by the Foundation directly to an eligible tenant to assist with rental costs. The subsidy is based on the difference between thirty per cent (30%) of a household's income and an agreed upon market rent, to a maximum subsidy established by Lakeland Lodge and Housing Foundation Board of Directors.

The Government of Alberta has redesigned its Rent Supplement Program to meet the needs of more Albertans, including working families and those most in need.
Starting April 1, we are accepting applications for the Rent Assistance Benefit. Formerly, the Direct to Tenant Rent Supplement, this long-term benefit will continue to subsidize low income Albertans.
The Rent Supplement program are available in the Town of Bonnyville, The City of Cold Lake, The M.D. of Bonnyville and the Village of Glendon.
This program is administered through our Foundation on behalf of the Province of Alberta.  The rent supplement program provide assistance to households in need to obtain and maintain affordable and suitable rental accommodation. The program provides rent subsidies in eligible rental projects. Applicants are prioritized on the basis of need, as determined by income ( below Income Threshold), assets and current housing conditions.
