Northern United Place
Northern United Place is owned and managed by the N.W.T. Community Services Corporation. We opened our doors on November 7, 1976.
We are the largest non-profit housing provider in Yellowknife, NT. We rent 84 bachelor and one bedroom apartments to seniors and people with low income. All tenants pay rent based on 30% of their gross income.
Many seniors, new immigrants and people with mobility issues find Northern United Place a warm, safe and welcoming home. Northern United Place plays an important role in providing affordable housing in Yellowknife.
We are a non-profit corporation and operate with income from our tenants (both commercial and residential). We do not receive government funding to cover any operational shortfalls.
The Corporation is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of 6 members from the Yellowknife United Church and 3 members representing the Yellowknife community. Day to day management of the building is overseen by an Executive Director on behalf of the Board.
