Division News


The Housing Department provides approximately 138 residences for Northland School Division educators. Housing is governed by the Residential Tenancy Act and each residence includes a unit number. Go to subpages to view housing in specific communities. 

Our continuing focus is to: 

  • Be client focused with professional staff as clients
  • Implement a standardized rental fee structure over the division with equity as the driving force
  • Provide quality maintenance service to tenants
  • Pursue a policy of continuous improvement in the provision of housing services


  • Professional staff automatically qualify for housing in communities that provide residences. 
  • Paraprofessional staff will qualify if vacant residences exist within the community with no foreseeable need for professional staff utilization


  • Term coincides with employment 

Assignment to Housing:

  • The Housing Coordinator in collaboration with the school Principal assigns housing units to the professional staff.
