A message from Ken Fraser

Executive Director, VRS Communities

What makes us different from other Seniors Residences:

With almost 50 years of experience raising standards for affordable living in British Columbia, we’re focused on carrying this promise through to our Seniors residences. We’re new, and we’re listening – to what our seniors want, to what they need and most importantly, to how they like to live.

VRS Communities is a non-profit organization, meaning every dollar we earn goes back into your quality of living. With an invested business approach, we stand by our commitment to provide quality housing and services and continue to look for new ways forward to improve the lives of our seniors. Service is at the heart of what we do and we’re here to work for you. We stand by our five-star service guarantee and believe in creating an experience that is best-in-class for our residents and their families. VRS Seniors Living is about you. And that’s our promise.
