  • Date to be announced

Please note that additional Orientation dates may be added as required.

Attending orientation is compulsory. This session will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about becoming a member.


This is not emergency or subsidized housing.

Members of your household who are 18 years of age or older are required to attend our Orientation sessions.

Please note, however, that young children should not accompany their parents/guardians to the Orientation Session. Please make alternative babysitting arrangements for the duration of the session, which usually lasts about one to one and a half hours. We make this our policy so that all attendees can focus their full attention on the presentation so that they can get all the information they need and make an informed decision as to whether or not they should apply as members.

Applicants must pass credit and other checks and be able to pay the full housing charges if accepted as a Member.

The cost of the credit check is now $25 forĀ each applicant.
