Saskatchewan Housing Corporation Announces Relief for Tenants Under Evacuation

Released on July 16, 2015

The Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC) is following in the footsteps of the utility Crown corporations and SGI by offering temporary relief to any of its tenants under evacuation due to fires burning in northern Saskatchewan. 

If you live in a community under an evacuation order and rent a SHC-owned property from a local housing authority, you will receive a credit for the month of July towards your August rent.  The same credit will be applied to September rents if your community’s evacuation order extends into the month of August.

“Saskatchewan Housing Corporation has the responsibility to set an example in supporting tenants during this stressful time,” Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer said.  “We want to make the return home just a little bit easier once the evacuation orders are lifted.  This is what we have done in the past with floods and other evacuations and we believe it is the right thing to do.” 

As the province’s biggest landlord, SHC owns approximately 1,400 units in northern Saskatchewan and provides a wide range of programs and services to help those in greatest housing need.  For more information, tenants of SHC-owned properties are asked to contact their local housing authorities once they have returned to their home communities.
