Emergency Home Repairs

Easy application

Tax filing required

The Emergency Home Repairs Program offers up to $12,000 in financial assistance to help homeowners with low incomes complete emergency repairs to make their homes safe.


  • You cannot get this help if you do the repairs before you get written approval from Saskatchewan Housing Corporation
  • The homeowner is responsible for all costs greater than the approved amount.
  • Once approval is granted, work must be completed within three months.

Homeowners are eligible if you:

  • Own the property to be repaired and occupy it as your primary residence.
  • Need an urgent repair to your property (for example, your furnace breaks during the winter and you need to replace it right away).
  • Have an annual household income and household assets at or below the limits established by Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.

Proof of housing situation

For example:

  • letter from landlord about your housing situation
  • eviction notice
  • disconnection notice
  • police report about an incident involving your housing
  • moving company quote or invoice
  • list of repairs needed in home
  • list of expenses for renovations needed for independence in the home
  • proof of home ownership (mortgage, property ownership)

Social Insurance Number

For example:

  • confirmation of SIN letter
  • plastic SIN card (non-expired)
