Access to non-profit housing

In communities across Ontario local co-ordinated access groups have been set up to provide tenants with easy access to social housing. Contacting these groups is the easiest way to find out about social housing in each community.

These co-ordinated access groups provide information on all the social housing available in their community. They also provide a single application form that will be used by all housing groups.

Please choose by your region:

Toronto
Central Ontario
Southern Ontario
Southwestern
Eastern Ontario
Northern Ontario
