Notices and Local Rules
The Housing Services Act 2011 allows Service Managers flexibility to establish local policies to accommodate local needs and priorities. Niagara Regional Housing acts as Service Manager on behalf of Niagara Region. All local policies established by us are communicated to Social Housing Providers through a notice. Each notice is dated and numbered according to the date of issue. The top right-hand corner of the notice indicates whether the policy is mandatory under the Housing Services Act 2011 or is for information purposes only.
Social Housing Providers are required to amend their policies/procedures in accordance with mandatory notices if they are not already in compliance. We recommend that all notices be kept in a binder for future reference by staff, auditors, board members, tenant/members and other interested parties.
If you have any questions regarding any of the notices, contact your Housing Administrator.
