About: 

Yukon Housing Corporation's social housing program is primarily for low-income individuals, families and seniors in need who cannot obtain affordable and suitable housing on the private housing market. YHC rental housing stock exists in Whitehorse and in nine rural Yukon communities. Social housing ‘Rent is Geared to Income’ (RGI) and is 25% of the total gross monthly household (combined) income.

Applications for social housing are assessed by local advisory boards on the basis of applicant need and unit availability. The website lists contact information for YHC rural offices.
