What do we do?
We provide a one-stop housing solution for people looking for affordable
housing in Toronto.
Although we are not a landlord; we provide access to the central waiting list
for about 70,000 subsidized rental units in Toronto. This includes
rent-geared-to-income units as well as rent supplement and housing allowance
units in cooperatives, private non-profits, supportive housing, Toronto
Community Housing buildings and private market buildings.
Housing Connections manages:
and helps people apply to the central waiting list for
housing in Toronto (rent is pegged at about 30 percent of income);
the Canada-Ontario-Toronto Housing
Allowance Program, providing an allowance for rent based on unit size
for applicants on the waiting list for subsidized housing.
