Policies

Once a tenant accepts an apartment to rent, it is our expectation that this will remain their home while they are a tenant of Greater Victoria Housing Society.

To be approved for an internal transfer, a tenant must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Medical need with documentation from a medical specialist
  • Documented increase or decrease in unit occupants
  • Decrease in household income that affects the ability of the tenant to pay rent on a long-term basis

If a tenant is approved for an internal transfer they will only be considered for units where they qualify based on income, family size and/or medical requirements.

For further details on the application process please contact us directly at info@greatervichousing.org.

A tenant who requests a support animal in a building with a no-pet policy is required to provide proof of the necessity to have an animal reside in the unit, in order for approval to be given.
