Homeowner Grant Changes 2021 and other Well-being News

The Well-being committee is presently working on a number of issues:

  • Senior Care Issues arising from the pandemic – the committee would like to work closely with COSCO and the BC Seniors’ Advocate to clarify the issues, develop policy, and lobby for needed changes.
  • Housing for Seniors
  • The committee has agreed to work in conjunction with BCRTA staff to produce two webinars for the 2021-2022 year; ideas and content to be established by the committee at future meetings.

The committee would like to remind membership that this year there has been a change in how the Homeowner Grant works. Be sure to read your 2021 Property Tax Notice carefully and go online to apply at www.gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant.ca
