Moving In

Staff Housing

When it's time to move into your accommodations there are a few details you should be aware of.

  1. Eligibility for housing is subject to a clear Criminal Record Check (CRC). The CRC must be submitted to Staff Housing no later than your move-in day. If the CRC is only required for housing purposes then you will be responsible for the cost of the CRC. See FAQ for details on how to obtain one. 

    If you are a returning employee that has left less than six months ago your CRC is still valid and you do not require a new one.

  2. Housing is available two days before your first day of work. Once travel plans have been confirmed, contact Staff Housing to book a check-in appointment. Please keep in mind Housing office hours are: 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. Monday - Friday with the last appointments of the day scheduled for 4:00p.m. On arrival you will receive a housing orientation, and a tour of the accommodation to familiarize you with your surroundings.
  3. Regardless of which type of accommodation you live in, employees will need to provide the following:
    • Bedding for a single bed (sheets, blankets, pillow).   
    • Personal toiletries (towels, soap, toilet paper, etc.)
    • Cookware/kitchenware, if you plan to cook your own meals
    • Cleaning products to maintain the space
  4. A valid work visa will be accepted for foreign applicants for one month from the original work visa issue date. After this time, foreign workers are required to obtain a CRC issued by a Canadian law enforcement authority.

Due to the limited space available accommodation cannot be guaranteed as part of your employment.
