Your rent is due on the first business day of each month.
The Sault Ste. Marie Housing Corporation (SSMHC) accepts cash, Cheques or you can use your debit card for all payments. Note: the SSMHC does not accept postdated Cheques or third party Cheques.
Pre- Authorized Debit Agreements Are Available
SSMHC tenants can enroll in our Pre Authorized Debit Agreements (PADA Program). This program allows your rent payment to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the first day each month.
Who Can Use PADA?
Any tenant with a stable source of income. If your income changes every month, then your rent will also change so you won't be the best candidate for PADA. If you source of income (and your rent payment) stays the same from month to month, you are eligible to use PADA.
How To Enroll
Fill out an application form, and return it along with a cheque marked VOID to the SSMHC main office. Applications received by the 15th of any month, can have their automatic withdrawal set up by the 1st of the following month.
