CAFN accepting applications for new rental homes in Whitehorse
Champagne and Aishihik First Nations (CAFN) is happy to soon offer affordable rental homes for CAFN dän (people) in Kwanlin (Whitehorse) for the first time.
The Dän nätthe dätthʼi (CAFN Council) believes that providing an opportunity for Citizens to have a place to call home is a foundation for a good life. It is dän k’e – our way, to help those who need it most, so helping our people who need homes is important to us as dän shawthän (good Southern Tutchone people).
The 20 homes at 195 Olive May Way in the Whistle Bend Subdivision are nearing completion. They include 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units, with barrier free/accessible 1 and 2 bedroom units. Rental rates for the homes will be affordable and set below market value.
CAFN will accept applications from Citizens from June 24 to July 18, 2022.
Everyone who wishes to apply must provide an updated application form to CAFN Property Services in order to be considered by the CAFN Housing Committee.
All CAFN Citizens are eligible to apply for these homes, and Citizens who are homeless or at risk of homelessness will be prioritized, in keeping with our Policy and funding agreements with Canada and Yukon Housing Corporation. The homes will be allocated in keeping with CAFN’s existing Housing Policy and application process. PLEASE NOTE: This is not a first-come, first-served application process.
Tenants with dogs will not be permitted, but other pets are allowed in keeping with City of Whitehorse bylaws.
