Public Housing Program

Easy application

Tax filing not required

The Public housing program is offered by the Department of Social Development (SD). This program helps households in need get affordable, adequate and suitable rental accommodation by subsidizing rents in publicly owned rental dwellings.

Tenants qualifying for assistance through the Public Housing Program will have your rents reduced to 30% of the adjusted household income.

Subsidized rental accommodations are given to low-income rental households whose income is below the established "income ceilings" which vary by household size and by areas within the province. Tenants are chosen on demonstrated need.

Please contact the housing office of the Department of Social Development at or call the regional office in your area:
