Project Profiles

Since 2004, NRH has worked with the Federal, Provincial, Regional and local municipal governments to administer the Canada-Ontario Affordable Housing Program. These programs have provided funding totaling almost $40M under the Pilot (2004), Wave 1 (2007) and the Affordable Housing Program 2009 Extension.

All of the 530 units created under this program are owned and managed by private sector and non-profit organizations. They provide “affordable” rents to qualified tenants under a maximum income limit. Interested applicants can contact the owner’s directly to apply - visit the Project Profiles page for more information.
