About Us

The Vernon and District Community Land Trust Society, a local non-profit organization, is actively providing affordable housing in our communities and is working to ensure even more options in the future.

The Land Trust has identified working families on a low to moderate income as the ‘forgotten population’ and is developing housing for these households. We are also open to developing projects for other target populations as opportunities arise.

Our Vision:
A permanent supply of affordable housing to meet the needs of the North Okanagan.

Mission Statement:
To increase the supply of affordable housing for individuals and families with low to moderate income.

The Land Trust has identified minimum wage and entry level working individuals and families as the “forgotten population”. As property values have increased dramatically in the North Okanagan, rental and purchased properties have become few and unattainable for many of the employees that service our community. The Land Trust is focused on developing a permanent inventory of housing for this important group of citizens. They are also open to developing and managing affordable rental housing for seniors.
