The Saskatchewan Co-Investment Program (SCIP) is a provincial program that complements the National Housing Co-Investment Fund (NHCF), a federal program administered by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) as part of the National Housing Strategy (NHS). SCIP provides 10-year forgivable loans to support the construction of new affordable rental housing and the repair and renewal of existing affordable housing in Saskatchewan.
