Subsidized housing is for eligible households who do not have enough income and/or assets to pay market rent.
You can apply for subsidized housing if:
You will be required to provide documentation clearly indicating your legal right to live in Canada if you have not already done this.
Some service manager areas may have income and asset limit policies that will affect eligibility for the waiting list. You may be required to submit income verification documents i.e. Notice of Assessment.
Many housing providers have units that are available at the market rate (similar to what you would pay a private sector landlord). If you are interested in applying for a market rent unit, you will need to contact the housing provider directly. You can call the centralized waiting list administrator to get the housing provider’s contact information.
When the centralized waiting list administrator(s) receive your application, they will make sure that it is complete and that all the documents you must provide are included. If your application is not complete, the centralized waiting list administrator will let you know what information is needed.
You will get a letter from the centralized waiting list administrator telling you:
If you disagree with any of these decisions, you may request a review of the decision. See section on the decision review process.
If there is a change in any of the information that you provide, you must notify the waiting list administrator of the change in order to maintain your eligibility status. You will be notified if additional documents or information are required.
If a centralized waiting list administrator decides that you are not eligible for subsidized housing, you will be told in writing. If you do not agree with the decision, you can request a review of that decision. Your appeal will be reviewed and you will get a letter telling you about the results of your appeal.
If you have any questions about the collection and use of personal information, please contact the centralized waiting list administrator(s) you have applied to.
