Eligibility Requirements For Our Programs

Eligibility for our programs varies as each program is meant to address a different housing need. If you are not eligible for one program, you may be eligible for others, so we encourage you to check in regularly and read through the applications for more information. Every application will specify who is eligible and give information on the required supporting documents or forms we need to assess your eligibility. If in doubt, simply ask staff! 


For our Home Repair Program, only those Beneficiaries in the Land Claims Area who own their own home and are not renting can be considered. This program requires income disclosure in the form of a Notice of Assessment from the CRA for all those permanent residents in the home under the age of 65, even if you have no source of income. This program is cost-shared depending on the level of household income reported, so you must submit disclosure to be assessed.


Everyone is eligible for our Affordable Rental Program, however demand will exceed supply of available units and we therefore need to prioritize units towards those who most exactly fit our target demographic. Specifically, the target demographics of this program are Inuit who are low and moderate-income, and especially seniors (55+), youth, families, and individuals who can live independently, and/or those living with or at risk of homelessness, disabilities, violence at home, and/or are facing the separation of children due to an inadequate housing assessment.
