12 New Housing Units on the way for Seniors and Disabled Kamloops Residents

KAMLOOPS — The latest housing addition to downtown Kamloops will also feature extra homes for seniors and people with disabilities.

Oncore Seniors Society has announced construction is underway on 12 new affordable homes within one floor of The Lightwell, a new 6-storey development under construction along St. Paul Street.

In a release, the Society says the BC Government is providing around $2.25 million in capital funding for the project.

“We are thrilled to work with Oncore Seniors Society to give more people in Kamloops the security and peace of mind that comes with having an affordable place to call home,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “We are going to keep working hard to make life better for families, seniors and people with disabilities in Kamloops and across B.C.”

Located at 444 St. Paul Street, the mixed-use development that the units will add to already includes 140 residential units and commercial space. 

Oncore Seniors Society

River City Seniors Society was originally established in the mid-1960’s.   Seniors Outreach Services Society was originally established in the mid-1990’s.  In 2013 Oncore Seniors Society was formed by the amalgamation of these two organizations.  With financial assistance from BC Housing we are able to assist seniors to live independently in a safe and affordable environment.  We currently have projects in Kamloops and Prince George.
