New Sakura-so Seniors’ Residence opened in May, 1998. It offers seniors affordable housing and an opportunity to lead active and fulfilling lives in a secure residence. Seniors live independently with the support of the National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre’s programs and activities. New Sakura-so is operated by Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society in partnership with Homes BC.
Residents supply their own furniture and are encouraged to make their apartments their home. Spacious one-bedroom apartments with balconies and studio suites offer residents the independence and privacy they are accustomed to, while offering opportunities for socializing and group activities. Each apartment (except for studios) has full cooking facilities so that residents can cook for themselves and guests.
Rent is on a sliding scale, and seniors apply for tenancy at our office. This project is operated with rental subsidies from HomesBC and generous donations from the community. The waiting list is dependent on the type of unit that becomes available. To qualify, applicants must permanently reside in British Columbia when applying.
