Safe Housing

Health Inspectors, in partnership with other agencies, work to ensure the housing environments we live in are safe and meet minimum housing standards. Public health inspectors may investigate certain rental housing conditions on a complaint basis.

What types of issues could a Public Health Inspector assist with?

  • Lack of plumbing
  • Lack of drinking water supply
  • Lack of water heating facilities
  • Sewer back-ups
  • Rodent/insect harbourage or infestation
  • Lack of heating
  • Extensive mould

Please Note: If you are not the current legal tenant or owner of the rental accommodation you are concerned about, keep in mind Inspectors will have limited ability to assist in rectifying the situation. Health inspectors do not assist in rectifying non-health related concerns such as cosmetic updating, noise violations, and appliance repairs.

If you have a concern regarding a rental unit that is not health related (listed above) please contact your localOffice of Residential Tenancies.

Certain issues with rental units may be dealt with through City of Regina Bylaws Enforcement.
