Application for rental housing
Affordable housing is intended for low to moderate income households, including families, youth, seniors and persons with a disability. Under this program, tenants enjoy rental rates that are below market rent in this community. Maximum unit rents (MUR) are determined and revised by Saskatchewan Housing Corporation, based on median market rents (MMR) in Regina.
You are eligible for the affordable housing program if:
- Your household’s income is at or below the limits established and revised by Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC), through the Social Housing Program Rates Schedule;
- You are able to live independently either alone or with supports;
- Your household fits with the types of housing we have available;
- You have good rental and/or character references;
- You are NOT in Canada on a student visa or as a visitor.
If you are eligible, Ehrlo Housing will review your housing circumstances (family size and composition) and assess your level of need for housing (Priority Assessment). When a unit is available, Ehrlo Housing will approve the household with the greatest housing need on a first come/first serve basis and by interview.
If your application is approved but no housing unit is available immediately, you may be put on a waitlist, and you may need to provide additional information to confirm you are still eligible for the program when a unit becomes available.
Rates are determined based on the Maximum Unit Rents (MUR) allowable as published by Saskatchewan Housing Corporation. The MURs are adjusted periodically to reflect changes in the median market rents (MMR) in this community (see below for current year maximums).
Ehrlo Housing reviews rental rates annually based on SHC’s updated Rate Schedule and proposes any rent increase, which then must be approved by the Board of Directors of the Ranch Ehrlo Society. All notice of rental rate increases will follow the guidelines of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, and be reported to SHC.
Every year, between April 1st and May 30th, the Tenant must provide proof of the total annual income of each member in the household and verification of family composition. Failure to provide either document on an annual basis will result in a 30 day Notice to Vacate.
If you are no longer eligible
If it is determined that your income or family composition has changed and you are no longer eligible for affordable housing, Tenants will be given a 90 day notice (3 months) in which to find other suitable accommodations.
