Supportive Housing

What is the Northern Pathways to Housing Program?

This program provides supports for emergency housing and transitional housing in NWT’s smaller communities for residents who are unable to access social housing programs because of past behaviour (arrears or other tenant issues), or residents in situations in which the limited availability of suitable housing has limited their options.

Under the program, the Northwest Territories Housing Corporation (NWTHC) will renovate an existing unit into four (4) self-contained suites.

Who is eligible for the Northern Pathways to Housing Program?

Funding from the Small Community Homelessness Fund is available to community organizations such as: Non-government organizations* (NGOs), Community governments, and Indigenous Governments.

*Non-Government Organizations must be up to date with Corporate Registries.

The project will be a partnership with eligible community agencies entering into a Contribution Agreement with the NWTHC.

If you are a Senior Adult, (60 years and older) you can apply at any time for assistance under any housing program.

What funding is available?

The NWTHC will provide ongoing funding of  $70,000 annually per community for operating costs for the unit of four (4) self-contained suites, including utilities and maintenance, some supplies, and support for workers/case workers staffing.
