Quint Development Corporation is a unique not-for-profit organization, focused on creating economic opportunities that help to strengthen communities and improve social conditions for Saskatoon residents.
The corporation was conceived by area residents with support from civic and provincial governments, and Saskatoon businesses. The goal is to create opportunities for stable housing, jobs and economic development in Saskatoon's West-side core neighbourhoods.
Quint's unique affordable housing program was developed as part of a larger Community Economic Development (CED) strategy to revitalize Saskatoon's core neighbourhoods. Stable, safe and affordable housing is necessary for the well-being of individuals, families and healthy communities.
The innovating housing programs integrate social, economic and environmental objectives into each housing project. To maximize the community benefits, Quint links housing projects with other complimentary initiatives in the community.
The Core Neighbourhoods at Work (CNAW) program was developed to address the needs of a growing number of adults and youth in the core neighbourhoods looking to further their education or work experience. Learn more about CNAW.
Core Neighbourhoods At Work (CNAW) has been addressing the employment and training needs of Saskatoon's core neighbourhood residents since 2003.
The Core Neighbourhoods At Work program works with core area residents who are looking for work or who intend to go back to school.
