Rent Supplement Program

Easy application

Tax filing not required

The Rent Supplement Program matches Yukoners who are eligible for social housing with participating landlords. The Government of Yukon pays the median market rent directly to the landlord and the tenant pays 25% of their income to the government.

The Rent Supplement Program uses the same application form as the Yukon Housing Corporation’s rent-geared-to-income or social housing program.

You may be eligible for the Rent Supplement Program if:

  • Your total household income falls below the established Household Income Limits for the community.
  • You have lived in Yukon for at least 12 months.

You must complete the Rent Supplement Program application which is the same as the rent-geared-to-income application and then submit your application by email to ykhouse@yukon.ca or in person at 410 Jarvis Street, Whitehorse, Yukon.

If you have any questions about applying to the Rent Supplement Program, email ykhouse@yukon.ca or call 867-667-5759 or toll free in Yukon at 1-800-661-0408 extension 5759.
