WELCOME
to the Housing Trust of
Nova Scotia

The combination of rent levels in any one building helps keep the building financially sustainable and allows a range of households to afford to live in a neighbourhood. That can help keep a community diverse and vibrant. 

At the Housing Trust of Nova Scotia, our purpose is to collaborate and partner to build and maintain diverse and livable communities in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), and our primary mission is to provide good quality, affordable housing for low to moderate-income households in communities where the cost of housing is skyrocketing.

The combination of rent levels in any one building helps keep the building financially sustainable and allows a range of households to afford to live in a neighbourhood. That can help keep a community diverse and vibrant.

The Housing Trust owns a total of 295 units. Our goal is to acquire 1,000 units by 2030, transitioning units from the private sector to the community or non-profit sector where affordability will be protected. We’ll implement our “mixed-income” model, ensuring that buildings are more affordable to HRM’s workforce and people on fixed incomes.

Our work is focused in the HRM and on acquisition. In the future, we aspire to work across Nova Scotia and partner with governments and non- and for-profit organizations to develop new affordable housing and community amenities. There is also an essential role for all of us to play in promoting the growth and success of the non-profit or community housing sector.

Thank you to our supporters!
