Waiting List Management Online Course

The City of Toronto’s Waiting List Management (WLM) Online Course focuses on the rules and processes for allocating Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) subsidy and effective waiting list management.

This course, along with the “Waiting List Management System” training, is mandatory for all housing provider staff who administer RGI and work with the centralized waiting list (CWL).

All participants will be required to complete an online test before the course closing date.

Waiting List Management System Course

The Waiting List Management System Course provides training on using the City’s vacancy management system, where the CWL lives.

The successful completion of the WLM Online Course is a pre-requisite to taking the “Waiting List Management System” training.

All RGI Administrators who use the CWL within the City of Toronto portfolio of housing providers are required to attend this training session, in most cases immediately following the successful completion of the WLM Online Course.

Both the Online and the System training must be successfully completed before the participant can use the CWL to fill vacancies
