Yes. When you apply for housing, you will be asked where you want to live. You can choose one or many locations. Your name will be added to the waiting list for each location where you are eligible.
Rent-geared-to-income is based on 30% of your gross monthly income, or if you are receiving assistance from Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program, a social assistance rent scale. Additional charges may apply depending on the location.
The length of time before a unit becomes available will vary depending on the locations you choose. It may take some time because of the small number of vacancies.
The system for selecting households is based primarily on date of application. Special priority may be given to your application if you are living with someone who threatens your safety or the safety of other household members.
