The Ministry of Social Services is responsible for overseeing housing for low-income people.
Just last year, the Ministry partnered with the federal government on a national housing strategy. Despite the fanfare that was made of this partnership, the subsidy isn’t available to those in greatest housing needs, or anyone receiving assistance. Qualification is extremely narrow.
Shelters have been particularly hard hit by COVID-19 pandemic and the calls for the Saskatchewan Party Government to reform the funding model for shelters have not been heard.
If you have concerns about your housing situation, contact Meara’s office to seek guidance.
