Saskatchewan Housing Strategy

Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC) works diligently to meet government's vision and goals by changing Saskatchewan people's lives for the better through safe, quality and affordable housing. SHC helps individuals and families with low incomes access adequate and affordable housing.

SHC is focused on the long-term needs of the community housing portfolio, focusing support to maximize the viability of the units based on condition, need and functionality. To ensure the longevity of existing units, SHC preserves existing housing through repair, renovation and adaptation.

This work is guided by the Housing Strategy for Saskatchewan, which was launched in 2011, to encourage the housing sector to make the difference needed to build a strong housing environment. This plan was the first of its kind in Saskatchewan, serving as a road map to create homes and inspire future work in the housing sector.

The vision of the Housing Strategy is that Saskatchewan people have access to homes that enhance their well-being, build local communities and contribute to a growing province. This vision is supported by five strategic priorities: increase housing supply; improve housing affordability; support individuals and families in greatest housing need; enhance strategic planning for housing; and collaborate, communicate and educate.

The Housing Strategy continues to be relevant today, and will guide SHC's work now and into the future. Although the focus has shifted from supply programs to affordability assistance, SHC recognizes the importance of having a variety of programs and services to respond quickly to ever-changing market conditions.
