The Glaslyn Housing Authority, on behalf of Saskatchewan Housing Corporation, offers the Social
Housing Program for seniors and families. 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 if they are:
Senior Housing (12 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
All other applicants may be considered for housing on a case-by-case basis. (some conditions apply).
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.
