The Blaine Lake Housing Authority, on behalf of Saskatchewan Housing Corporation, offers the Social Housing Program. The Program is designed to ensure that safe, adequate housing is available to those who could not otherwise afford it. Our tenants benefit from a safe place to call home, a community they can enjoy and peace of mind.
Applicants may be considered for social housing only if they are an intended client:
Senior Housing (24 units)
- Individuals or couples, 55 years of age or older
- Individuals near the age of 55 with a permanent physical or cognitive disability
Family Housing (5 units)
- Households with children or adult dependents
Further to this, applicants must meet income and asset limit requirements to be eligible for the Social Housing Program. All applicants are required to complete an application form and provide verification of income and assets, as requested. Information provided by applicants is kept strictly confidential.
