Seniors Housing

The Saskatoon Housing Authority provides suitable, well maintained, affordable housing for seniors with low incomes. Housing units can be found in 12 apartment complexes located in different areas of Saskatoon.

Applicants are placed by matching those with the greatest need with the next available unit. Greater priority is given to applicants living in unsafe or unsuitable current housing conditions because of a disability or a health condition caused or aggravated by the current accommodation conditions. Where possible, an applicant's location preference is taken into consideration when offering a unit.

Pets are not permitted in any of our units; however, persons requiring a service animal will be accommodated.

* SHA does not provide assisted living services or emergency housing.
