Shelter Enhancement Program – New

The Shelter Enhancement Program – New provides sponsors (developers) with financial assistance to increase the number of emergency shelters and second-stage housing for victims of family violence. The Shelter Enhancement Program – New is jointly funded by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.


Eligible sponsors may receive up to 100% of the project capital costs.

Financial assistance is not available for ongoing operating costs.


Sponsors are eligible if they:

  • are a non-profit corporation, First Nation group, or charity whose  objective is to operate housing for victims of family violence;
  • submit proof of a confirmed need or demand for their proposal; and
  • submit a viable capital plan and an operation sustainability plan that identifies all sources of long-term project and program funding.

A project is eligible if it:

  • is off-reserve;
  • creates additional shelter units or second-stage housing for victims of family violence; and
  • provides interim (not permanent) accommodation.
