Housing Assessments

Each year, SFN Housing conducts assessments.

 

This applies to:

1) SFN owned Homes

2) Aboriginal and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) funding applications

3) Health and Safety for residents

 

The reason for these assessments:

  • Make sure housing files are kept current and up to date.
  • Provides the basis for future funding applications
  • Is a requirement of the funding agencies
  • Provides SFN housing with a database of information for future planning.
