Ask for permission to leave your housing unit for a period of time

You must let us know if you will be leaving your social housing unit for a period of time. Only people who are named on your lease can stay at your house while you are away.

We want to make sure you have a plan:

  • so that your unit is kept in good condition; and
  • you pay your rent while you are away.
  1. Complete the Tenant absence form.
  2. Submit your form.
    In person: 410 Jarvis Street in Whitehorse. We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or go to the Yukon Housing Corporation Office in your community.
