Secondary and Backyard Suite Incentive Program

Opportunity to increase housing in Kentville!

With the growing demand for the limited housing stock, the low rental vacancy rate in Kentville, and growing community concerns, we want to provide you with the information you need when new housing opportunities arise.  

The Nova Scotia Provincial Government has launched a Secondary and Backyard Suite Incentive, a forgivable loan for up to 50% of the project cost, up to a maximum assistance of $25,000 for a Secondary and/or Backyard suite. The assistance is forgiven over the loan term of up to five years.
