About Us
Please note: ONLY applications for Retirement Living are being accepted at this time. There is a long waiting list for Independent Living accommodation and applications are not being accepted.


Unitarian House of Ottawa will be opening our Senior Apartment Waiting Lists!

That’s right, you read correctly. We will be opening our waiting lists for our Senior Apartments, however there are a few things we would like you to know before considering to apply.

The Apartment Waiting List closed back in 2007 when all lists had a combined total of over 700 applicants! Historically we have maintained active lists (those ready to move in) and in-active lists (those not ready to move in but wanting to hold their place). Now that we will be opening the Senior Apartment Waiting List again, we will only be accepting applicants for an active list, that is from those prepared to accept accommodation as soon as it is offered.

Similar to other Housing Registries, those on a waiting list will be entitled to three offers. If accommodations are not accepted on the third and final offer applicants will be removed from the Waiting List and a new application must be made when the desired list is open.

Which Lists are Open and when will they Close?

Senior Apartments

Beginning January 7th 2019 applications will be accepted from the first 50 applicants for one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. These lists will re-open any time they are reduced to 10.

The Rent Geared to Income Waiting List will remain closed.

Retirement Residence

Applications continue to be accepted for the Retirement Residence. The Waiting List for bedsitting units will accommodate 50 applicants and the two-room suite list will accommodate 15 applicants. Both lists will re-open any time the lists reduce to 10.

How to Apply

Senior Apartments - Beginning January 7th 2019 Unitarian House will be accepting applications 9am – 4pm Monday - Friday.

Applications will only be accepted by hard copy in person with the application fee of $20.00.

You may pick up an application at reception or online at www.unitarianhouse.ca

Retirement Residence – Applications continue to be accepted for the Retirement Residence.

After January 7th, please check the website regularly for updates on the status of each waiting list.

**A note for those currently on a waiting list at Unitarian House**

Those already on a Waiting List will continue to maintain their priority based on their date of application. Those currently on an in-active waiting list may remain on the in-active list until ready to move to an active list. Once on an active list they must be prepared to accept accommodation as soon as it is offered and will not be able to move back to an in-active list. Similar to other Housing Registries, those on a waiting list will be entitled to three offers. If accommodations are not accepted on the third and final offer the applicant will be removed from the list and the in-active lists will gradually be eliminated.

As in previous years, those currently on a waiting list will receive their waiting list reminder notice in February 2019.
