Affordable Rental Housing

Without housing, no one can thrive.  To support our community members and meet this important need, IWAV owns and operates two properties for rental housing.

The Cedars

The Cedars is a second stage program that provides housing for people who identify as women (inclusive of cis, trans and non-binary women) and their children who are re-establishing themselves after abuse. The Cedars has 7 units with a mix of 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom plus a loft, single loft and bachelorette suites in a central location. Tenancies are up to 16 months during which residents are encouraged and supported to heal and grow through access to IWAV programs.

To apply for The Cedars, contact: or 250-931-2032.


Croftonbrook is a 5 acre property in the Ganges Village that is in walking distance to services, hospital, shopping and restaurants.  At Croftonbrook, IWAV provides affordable rental housing to low to moderate income seniors and people with disabilities who can live independently.  

With the successful completion of a new building in 2020, IWAV now has 40 rental units that are studio or 1 bedroom.  Some of the units are in small pods and others are in an apartment building.  The rental rates are determined based on income levels and vary depending on the individual or couple’s income.  

To apply for housing at Croftonbrook, please visit the BC Housing website and either print the application form and mail it in, or fill it in online.

IWAV will begin construction of a new apartment building in Spring 2021.  Phase 3 will be a mixed model building, which means that rentals will be available to individuals, couples and small families who have low to moderate incomes.  Occupancy is planned for Spring 2022 and the application is not available at this time.  

IWAV welcomes diversity within the resident community at Croftonbrook and is committed to an inclusive environment that includes respects diverse expression of culture, gender, sexual orientation and abilities.
