The New, Simplified World of Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) Administration

January 18, 2021 to April 18, 2021

The new, simplified rules will make RGI administration and calculations easier for community housing providers and tenants to predict and understand.

Some service areas will implement new rules as early as July 1, 2020. Other service managers will delay their implementation to 2021.

After July 1, 2021, all service managers and community housing providers will use the new RGI rules.

Get ready for the new, simplified world of RGI!

Who should take this course?

This course is designed for community housing providers who operate units or who have entered into rent supplement agreements with their service manager that are governed by the Housing Services Act, 2011.

This course does not apply to community housing providers who continue to operate under former federal agreements (Section 95) or provincial agreements with Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOH/LTC) or Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS).

This course is recommended for community housing staff who are responsible for administering RGI or review RGI decisions.
