Silver Sage Housing Corporation’s Home Fire complex in North Regina is a transitional place for people in need of immediate supportive housing, empowering them to move toward independence.

Part of the federal government’s Rapid Housing Initiative, one of the goals of the project is to get folks the housing they need as quickly as possible while maintaining high building standards. 

Silver Sage is collaborating with Regina Treaty / Status Indian Services (RT/SIS), which will be operating the programming that will serve the people living at Horse Dance Lodge, or misatimosimôwin mîhkowâp in Cree. Both Silver Sage and RT/SIS are entities under the File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council. 

Utilizing advancements in modular construction methods, the building was craned over 2 days in April 2023. It is scheduled for completion in late summer 2023.
