Home Repair Program now accepting applications all year round

Our government is committed to exploring and supporting innovative approaches to address the ongoing need for housing options in the territory, with programs designed to meet Yukoners’ evolving needs.

The Yukon Housing Corporation’s Home Repair Program provides funding for low to moderate-income Yukoners who own and are living in their homes to repair or address core housing needs in their principal residence. The Government of Yukon is expanding the intake period for this program so that it will now be open year-round until fully subscribed, with applications open now.

This program addresses housing affordability by providing loans and grants to eligible low-to-moderate-income Yukoners who own and are living in their homes. Eligible projects include those that improve the health, safety, suitability and accessibility of their residence.  

The Home Repair Program has four funding streams:

  • Home Repair Loan – up to $70,000 for upgrades or repairs related to health, safety, energy efficiency, or overcrowding. 
  • Emergency Repair Grant – up to $10,000 for repairs in need of immediate attention.
  • Accessibility Grant – up to $30,000 for retrofits that support mobility challenges and aging in place.
  • Wildfire Grant – up to $1,500 for the purchase of equipment or supplies to improve the air quality of your principal residence.

Applications are available online at Yukon.ca or at any Yukon Housing Corporation office. 

Yukoners lead busy lives and the need for home repairs can occur at any time. Expanding the Home Repair Program application period makes this program more accessible and allows more Yukoners to take advantage of these important supports.
