115 Senior’s Independent Living Homes in the Beautiful City of Fort St. John, BC

Coming Summer 2026

Harlequin at City Centre is an innovative Senior’s Independent Living Community that includes a collection of fully-appointed 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and studio Homes, universally designed for accessibility in the heart of Fort St. John.

Harlequin at City Centre is proudly owned and operated by VRS Communities Society – a non-profit housing provider committed to housing affordability and seniors living services. At Harlequin, combined rents and full seniors services, including meals, programs, and housekeeping, start from only $2500 per month. The Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER) program also helps make rents affordable for BC seniors with low to moderate incomes. SAFER provides monthly cash payments to subsidize rents for eligible BC residents who are age 60 or over.

VRS continues to work with BC Housing in support of all available housing grant subsidies benefiting our seniors population. As grants and special subsidies become available from BC Housing, VRS directs those funds to delivering additional levels of affordability to those most in need.

Welcome to a New Way Forward with Us

VRS Communities Society – Because Seniors deserve our very best. Live and thrive in your own home, your own community, with programs and services by VRS. Should you want to know more about our society, visit our website here.

At VRS Communities, we believe in providing seniors with an authentic and empathetic living experience. 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. With the recent expansion of 11 independent and assisted living communities, as well as ongoing new multi-generational developments, we continue to work for you, not shareholders.

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.

With exceptionally caring and helpful VRS staff, residents enjoy housekeeping services, a bistro, restaurant quality casual dining, traditional cultural cuisine nights, a library, music concerts, pub and games nights, special evening dancing, visiting and enjoying each other’s company, bridge and cribbage, bingo events, sacred spaces, movie nights, and mini-bus trip outings.
