Rent Assist is a financial assistance program from the Manitoba government. The purpose of the program is to help lower-income Manitobans by providing some extra money every month to help cover the cost of renting a home.
Founded in 1870, Manitoba means “where the spirit lives” in the languages of the Indigenous people who first lived in the region. Commonly referred to as ‘Friendly Manitoba,’ the province’s urban and rural communities are diverse and welcoming. It is also dubbed as a “keystone” province due to its geographical shape and and central position in Canada.
