Public Housing for Seniors

This program provides affordable rental housing to seniors (age 58 and older) with low incomes. Rent is determined by your annual income.

Rental units contain a stove and refrigerator and include heat and hot water. Some units are accessible for people with physical disabilities. There are units located across Nova Scotia.

This program is managed by the Housing Authorities.

Am I Eligible?

To qualify for one of these units, you must complete an application form and meet the guidelines for income, residency and core need.

To be eligible you or your spouse must be at least 58 years old.

Special consideration will be given to people with physical disabilities and other special needs.
