3. Who Can Purchase a Home

You may be able to purchase a home if you:

  • are a Housing Program tenant;
  • are able to obtain financing to purchase a home;
  • pay any arrears owed to a housing authority or Saskatchewan Housing Corporation before the sale is finalized.

Homes are for sale in Northern Administration District (NAD) communities that have limited housing options. This initiative is not available in La Ronge, Air Ronge, Creighton, or Denare Beach, as these communities have active housing markets.
