Social Housing refers to rental housing developed with the assistance of government and subsidized by government for people with low to moderate incomes, seniors, or people with special needs who can live, with supports, in the community.

As Service Manager the Social Housing Division is accountable for the administration of 11 publicly-funded Housing Providers. The day to day management of these projects however, remains with the individual Providers and their respective Boards.

Subsidies are based on the tenants' ability to pay, with rents calculated at approximately 30% of gross monthly household income up to market rent.  This is known as Rent Geared To Income.

The Division also administers Social Housing Centralized Waitlist.  If you are eligible, you will be placed on the waitlist.  Most people need to find their own rental housing in the private market while they are on the wait list as it can be a long wait.

 Do I qualify?
  • At least one member of the household must be 16 years of age or older and able to live independently.
  • Each household member must be a Canadian Citizen; or have made an application for status as permanent resident; or a claim for refugee protection; and must not have an enforceable removal order under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (Canada).
  • Arrears to any Social Housing Provider must be paid in full or there must be an active repayment agreement plan in place and in good standing. 
  • No household member will have been convicted of an offence related to rent geared-to-income assistance.
  • No household member will have been found by a court of law or the Landlord and Tenant Board to have misrepresented their income for the purpose of rent geared-to-income assistance.
  • No household will have assets that exceed $50,000 for a single person or $75,000 for a household of two or more people.
  • No household will have income that exceeds the Household Income Limits. 

Household Income Limit:

  • 1 bedroom: $31,000
  • 2 bedrooms: $37,500
  • 3 bedrooms: $40,500
  • 4 bedrooms: $50,000
  • Income limits are updated periodically in accordance with changes to the household income limits set out in Schedule 2 of Ontario Regulation 370/11 and the average market rents for the City of Cornwall and the Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.
