Please review the following information, regarding the completion of our application.

  1. Complete all questions and supply ALL of the required information. If a question does not apply to you, mark N/A in the section.

  2. You are required to provide a CURRENT Income Tax Notice of Assessment, pages 1 and 2 of your Income Tax Return as well as all your taxation slips to verify your income. Should your source of income be from AISH or Social Assistance we require a copy of the latest medical service card complete with the statement. If you do not have a copy of your return, you can get a copy sent to you through Service Canada by calling 1-800-622-6232. Please note that a copy of your bank statement is not sufficient as verification of income for our office.

  3. Please include the Medical Form(s) completed by your family doctor. Please note that 1 form is required for the applicant and an additional form is required if you have a spouse or co-applicant. Your doctor’s office is able to make a photo-copy of our medical report if required.

  4. Your completed application must be signed in the presence of a Commissioner for Oaths in and for the Province of Alberta. This service is provided at our main office, free of charge, by appointment. Please call 780- 476-1470 to book an appointment. The applicant and co-applicant (if applicable) are required to sign this form in four places. Vista Housing for Seniors address is 11622 – 119 Street, Edmonton, AB

  5. Incomplete applications will not be processed. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that all information is complete and that the application is signed by a Commissioner for Oaths prior to it being submitted. This is specifically a problem when medical reports are faxed separate from the application.

  6. All applications will be considered to be active for a 1 year period. Letters will be sent to each applicant once their application is completed and their landlord references have been checked. If an applicant has not been offered an apartment at the end of the 1 year time period, they will then have to contact the main office to re-apply.

  7. Applicants will be interviewed as part of the approval process.

  8. Vista Housing for Seniors age of tenancy is 63 years of age and older for all applicants and a minimum of 60 years of age for all co-applicants. Applicants and co-applicants must be able to live independently in an apartment setting. They must also be within the core need income threshold established by the Provincial Government

  9. If you have a sponsorship agreement, please note that you are not entitled to receive a rental subsidy from the Provincial Government and if approved for housing would be responsible to pay Market Rent.

  10. Applicants for single persons at 62 years of age will be considered for bachelor units providing there is no waitlist.

  11. If you are approved for residency with our office you will be required to sign a copy of our Crime Free Multi-Housing Lease Addendum as a condition of your tenancy.

Vista Housing for Seniors maintains a waiting list for all of our accommodations which is based upon the applicants need for housing. Because the waiting list is based upon need, it changes with each application received by our office. For this reason it is imperative that applicants include all relevant information regarding their need for housing. It is important to note that Vista Housing for Seniors staff will not inform you of the order of your placement on our waiting until such time as you are being offered an apartment with our office.
