Tenant Rights & Responsibilities
Tenants who reside in a rent-geared-to-income unit are protected by the Landlord and Tenant Board, an agency of the Government of Ontario under the Residential Tenancies Act, (2011).

All households in receipt of a rent-geared-to-income subsidy have responsibilities to obtain and retain their subsidy. These responsibilities are outlined in the Housing Services Act, (2006) and are explained in detail during the move-in process.

Applying for Affordable Market and Market Rent Units

For those who do not qualify for subsidized housing, Community Housing also operates affordable market rent and market rent units.
