Under the current funding formula, section 78 housing providers must share 50% of their yearly operating surpluses with the City of Toronto.
The City recognizes that housing providers achieve net income as a result of good performance and management. As an incentive to encourage this, the City changed the surplus sharing formula in 2007. The change allowed section 78 housing providers to keep a part of the net income that they would normally have repaid to the City. Housing providers were required to allocate this additional subsidy as a capital reserve fund contribution.
Section 78 housing providers may keep up to $100 per unit of their annual net income that they would normally repay to the City, or the total share of operating income owed to the City, whichever is less.
To be eligible for surplus sharing, a housing provider must be considered to be in “good standing” for the purposes of this City Guideline. A housing provider is considered to be in “good standing” if the housing provider:
If a housing provider is not eligible for surplus sharing because they are not in good standing for any of the reasons outlined above, or for any other reason determined by the Social Housing Unit in accordance with the Housing Services Act, the City’s AIR settlement letter will state that they do not qualify for surplus sharing for that year.
This amount is not included in the calculation of net income.
|Example: Toronto the Good Housing Corp.||s. 78 (mixed)||s. 78 (100% RGI)||Amount|
|A) Surplus||Line 1260||Line 1326||$29,524|
|B) Amount kept by provider without restriction||$14,762|
|C) Surplus repayable||Line 1262||Line 1327||$14,762|
D) Service Manager approved reduction
[Lower of surplus repayable ($14,762) or $100 per unit (134 x $100 = $13,400)]
|Line 1264||Line 1328||$13,400|
|Net surplus repayable||Line 1269||Line 1329||$1,362|
