Attention: housing providers in Toronto

The City of Toronto, in partnership with ONPHA, will be offering a customized course that will be mandatory for Toronto housing providers and will meet both new province-wide RGI administration requirements as well as requirements based on Toronto’s local rules. Please watch this space for this offering, coming Fall 2021.

We would like to provide clarification that while ONPHA’s standardized RGI course is open to everyone, all new staff administering RGI in Toronto will be required to register for the customized RGI course for Toronto when it becomes available. This requirement will apply to all Toronto housing providers, regardless of whether they have taken the standard RGI course offered by ONPHA.

If you have any questions about Toronto’s new requirements, please email
