Waiting List 

The length of your wait depends on the number of bedrooms required, location preference

and vacancy turnover rate. This means Housing Services cannot tell you where you are on

the wait list, nor can we predict how long you will have to wait. 

Rent you will pay 

Rent is approximately 30% of your total gross household income. Persons receiving a fixed

income such as Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program pay rates that are set

by the Province of Ontario.
