The Social Housing Registry is where applications for Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) housing are accepted.
Home Base Housing’s Housing Help Centre is one location in the city where the applications are available. By filling out an application with one of our Community Support Workers at the Housing Help Centre, applicants can apply to more than one housing provider by completing only one application form.
There is a particular priority for the waitlist: Special Priority. Special Priority status is a legislative reservation for individuals who are or have been abused by another household member. A separate application must be submitted (in addition to PART A) and the Registry required verification documentation.
Yes, there is a waitlist. Wait times vary depending on housing locations, bedroom size required/available and vacancy turnover.
Before arriving at the Housing Help Centre at 540 Montreal St. (see contact page for a map), be certain that you have the correct identification. Acceptable ID includes SIN card (original — not a copy), and a birth certificate. The application form has additional suggestions for acceptable ID choices.
