Housing can often be difficult to find in smaller communities throughout BC. With that in mind, the Stein Valley Nlakapamux School Board of Directors has purchased two teacher houses in Lytton. One of the teacher units is a two story, 4 bedroom house in downtown Lytton. This house has two separate suits and can house several teachers. The second home is located on the “west side” which is just across the Fraser River. There is a ferry that runs 24/7 for anyone needing to cross the river. These houses can be rented by new teachers to the school who cannot find housing otherwise. SVNS also assists prospective teachers with finding accommodation since much of the housing market here works by word of mouth.
