If you have been living on Cortes and would like your off-island parent(s) to live on the island too, then inquire on their behalf about affordable year-round housing in the newly completed Seniors Village.
All cottages include a full set of energy-star appliances, in-suite washer/dryer, propane
fireplace, in-floor hot water heating, storage room, thermo-pane windows, and are well insulated for affordable winter utilities.
Located in uptown Mansons, within easy
1-block walking distance of the Health Centre,
Community Hall, Bank, Post Office, Library, Lake, shops and restaurants. These 1-bedroom cottages are available on annual leases for just $520/month or $650/month depending on unit size.
This adult-oriented community was built by the Cortes Island Seniors Society to provide affordable housing for seniors. However, units will be made available to those of a younger age if qualified seniors have not applied. Priority consideration for occupancy will be given to the following persons:
a) those who are fifty-five years of age and older;
b) Canadian citizens or landed immigrants;
c) those who have lived on or have a strong family connection to Cortes; and
d) those whose present housing is inadequate for their physical needs and psychological well-being.
Cottage tours by appointment only. Contact Jim at 935-0084 or Ruth at 935-6478 for more information.
