Provincial Housing Emergency Repair Program

This program is equally funded by the federal and provincial governments and offers financial assistance for homeowners to make emergency repairs to their homes.

The maximum amount of funding available is a $6,500 forgivable loan to help cover the cost of labour and materials.

Am I Eligible?

To be eligible for financial assistance:

  • You must own and live in the home you wish to renovate
  • Your household income must be below established ceilings, which are based on your household income and the area you live in
  • Repairs must be permanent and consideration will be given to repairs that improve health and safety such as wiring, roofing, septic tanks and wells

Cosmetic repairs are not eligible for funding.
