Cora Sellers, executive director of Carmichael Outreach, said last month about 60 people came in saying they had no place to live.

The province’s shelter allowance rates allot $328 for rent to single individuals who are deemed employable in Regina, Saskatoon, Estevan Lloydminster and the bedroom communities outside of those cities. Those deemed unemployable or partially employable receive $459.

Sellers said the average rental cost for one person in Regina is $750.
