a different +55 strata building

Minton  House is a +55 strata building (strata plan 3631) where seniors can buy or rent their suite from private owners.

It includes a total of 26 suites, 21 with one bedroom, 5 with two bedrooms, ranging from approximately 560 to 925 square feet.  Every suite has a full kitchen and a 3-piece bathroom with shower. 

How is it different?

  1. Minton House guarantees services

The services include

-  an evening meal

-  housekeeping

-  heavy laundry

-  medical alert system

-  front desk

-  security

They are guaranteed, since they are embedded in Minton House bylaws.


2. Minton House is not-for-profit

Unlike other places for seniors that are run by a private company, Minton House is run by owners elected as Council members, like a not-for-profit business.  Service rates reflect the true cost of the services; there are no surcharges.  

3. One strata lot belongs to the City of Victoria.                     

Strata lot 6 (a storage room) belongs to the City of Victoria. This protects the building from being taken over by a private company or a developer.



Of note, Minton House is not licensed as a nursing home or retirement home.  Seniors who are not fully independent may live there, but they have to make their own arrangements to get the care they need.
