The National Affordable Housing Corporation (NAHC) is a non-profit organization based in Saskatoon, Sask.

We’re part of a network of non-profits across Canada that helps low-to-moderate income individuals, couples and families find affordable housing answers. Working with the private sector, government and other nonprofits, we’ve helped build 900+ new affordable homes in Saskatchewan and partnered on nearly 20 multi-family affordable housing projects.

Many of these units are EnergyStar® certified and rated energy efficient, giving residents ongoing affordability through lower utility costs. With the support of government funding, we are about to achieve our first Net Zero Energy affordable rentals in Regina, Sask. The NAHC plans to increase our environmental stewardship through affordable housing by taking learnings from our first Net Zero Energy project and applying them to future rental projects as we expand across the prairie provinces.

A neighbourhood from a birds' eye view.

Founded in 2011, the NAHC began its housing journey delivering financial literacy, budgeting, credit building and homeowner education to families. The workshops helped people pay down debts, save money, and build or fix their credit so they could get a mortgage and become first-time homeowners.

In 2012, we started to offer the NAHC’s first monthly rental support program to help low-to-moderate individuals and families afford safe new rentals in good areas amid rising rental rates and increasing costs of living in Saskatchewan. We also began working with builder partners and government funders to deliver down payment assistance programs and tax sponsorships to help 1st-time homeowners get mortgages for government approved affordable new homes.

Through builder partners and government funding, were able to deliver down payment assistance programs and tax sponsorship to help families become 1st-time homeowners of government-approved affordable new homes.

In 2012, we also began delivering a Monthly Rental Support Program in partnership with the Government of Saskatchewan. The program was used to lower rents for households renting in approved new rentals so tenants could afford a quality, safe and appropriate rental for their families.

In 2018, the NAHC expanded its focus to leverage the team's development history and expertise so we could begin growing a unique new model of mixed affordable rentals. The NAHC team now administers more than 70 units of affordable rentals, including designated units for hard-to-house people with overlapping challenges, and has more than $52 million in various stages of rental operation, lease up, construction and development.
