Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) resources

The new, simplified rules will make RGI administration and calculations easier for community housing providers and tenants to predict and understand. The rules came into effect on July 1, 2020 and will be fully implemented in all service areas after July 1, 2021. Find information, templates and resources on this page to help community housing providers with the transition to the new rules. These resources are geared towards community housing staff who:

  • are responsible for administering RGI or who review RGI decisions
  • operate units or have entered into rent supplement agreements with their service manager that are governed by the Housing Services Act, 2011.
