Rural and Native Basic Shelter Rental Program

Easy application

Tax filing not required

The Rural and Native Basic Shelter Rental Program helps off-reserve native and non-native households in need get affordable, adequate and suitable rental housing in rural communities (with a population of less than 2,500 residents).

If you qualify, you can have your rent lowered to 30% of your household income.

Support is 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.

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