Are you dreaming of homeownership but concerned about affordability? The Saskatchewan Secondary Suite Incentive (SSI) Grant Program might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Launched by the Government of Saskatchewan, this innovative program aims to increase the availability of rental units, improve housing affordability, and generate supplementary income for homeowners.

What is the SSI Grant Program?

The SSI Grant Program provides financial assistance to homeowners who wish to build a new secondary suite at their primary residence. With the grant program covering 35% of the total price to construct a new secondary suite at an owner’s primary residence, to a maximum of $35,000 for a qualifying suite, homeowners can now make their homeownership dreams a reality while enjoying the benefits of additional income from rental units.

What it Means for Home Buyers

For homebuyers, having a secondary suite in their home means increased affordability and flexibility. It offers the opportunity to earn rental income, which can help offset mortgage payments and other expenses associated with homeownership. Additionally, homes with secondary suites tend to have higher property values, providing homeowners with a valuable investment that can yield long-term financial benefits.

Why Having a Home with a Secondary Suite is an Advantage

The advantages of owning a house with a secondary suite extend beyond financial considerations. It provides homeowners with flexibility in living arrangements, allowing them to accommodate family members or tenants while maintaining privacy and independence. Additionally, secondary suites offer a versatile living space that can be customized to suit various needs, whether it’s for additional income, multi-generational living, or simply as a flexible living space for changing lifestyles.
