Development

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 over $58M under the Pilot (2004), Wave 1 (2007), the Affordable Housing Program (2009) Extension, the Investment in Affordable Housing Extension Program (2015-18) and the Social Infrastructure Fund (2016-18).

All of the 618 units created under these programs 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 - Contact Info
