Provincially Funded Rent Bank

The Chamber is pleased to see resources provided to property owners through mortgage payment deferrals, however these assistances are not being passed down to the renters. At this time the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce is requesting that the Government of Saskatchewan take a fair and balanced approach to address the challenges associated with this crisis including the continued support of the rental market. Through collaboration with the Saskatchewan Landlord Association, the Chamber is asking the province to consider the immediate creation and funding of a ‘Rent Bank’ to support Saskatchewan renters that are financially affected by COVID-19.
