The Requests for Proposals (RFPs) below are to support the City of Toronto’s goal of achieving or exceeding the provincial housing target of 285,000 new Toronto homes and the City’s target of the approval of 40,000 new affordable rental homes with 18,000 supportive homes.

Current RFPs are listed below.

This RFP is to select a non-profit housing provider to sub-lease and operate affordable rental housing with support services at 150 Dunn Ave.

This project is being delivered in partnership with all orders of government, the University Health Network (UHN), the Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine and the United Way of Greater Toronto. The Social Medicine Initiative incorporates housing as a critical social determinant of health for individuals experiencing homelessness, particularly those from equity-deserving groups who are over-represented in Toronto’s homeless population with complex, chronic or acute health needs and who are recurring patients at UHN clinics and/or emergency departments.

The MURA program provides City grant funding and incentives to support the acquisition of private market rental housing by non-profit housing providers. These include Indigenous housing providers, co-operatives and community land trusts. The program supports these housing providers to purchase at-risk private market rental housing and secure the homes as permanently-affordable non-profit housing.

To advance the City’s commitments to truth, reconciliation and justice, 20 per cent of MURA funding is dedicated to property acquisitions by Indigenous housing organizations

The deadline for RFP submissions has now passed. The City is reviewing applications and will notify successful proponents during the week of June 19.
