Incentives for Homebuyers

Mortgage Flexibilities Support Program

To increase affordable home ownership opportunities in Saskatoon, the Mortgage Flexibilities Support Program was created by The City of Saskatoon, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC).

Only homes in designated projects qualify for this program. Private home builders provide new units that can be sold at prices that households with incomes below the Maximum Income Limits (MILs) can afford.

Total household income of the buyer must meet the Maximum Income Limits:

Household Size Income Limit by Household Size
One Person: $69,975
Two Persons: $74,640
One dependent: $79,305
Two dependents: $83,970
Three or more dependents: $88,635

Households maximum net worth limit: $25,000

With a 5% down payment grant from the City of Saskatoon and mortgage loan insurance from CMHC or Genworth Financial, qualified homebuyers will have the means to finance the purchase of a new home.

As the City of Saskatoon works toward a new Housing Business Plan, we will not be supporting any NEW project submissions for the Mortgage Flexibilities Support Program, effective July 12, 2022.
Please contact housinginfo@saskatoon.ca with any questions.
