Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI), or subsidized housing, is made available by the City to make rent affordable for households. In most cases, RGI rent is 30 per cent of a household’s monthly Adjusted Family Net Income (AFNI). The AFNI is determined annually using each household member’s Notice of Assessment (annual income tax return). If you receive social assistance, the rent is based on the rent benefit set by the Ontario government.
The number of people in need of subsidized housing exceeds the number of units available, meaning that wait times for an applicant to receive housing are significant. You are encouraged to consider RGI housing as a long-term housing plan, not an immediate solution to housing needs or emergency situations.
If you require emergency shelter, contact Central Intake at 416-338-4766.
You can provide us with your feedback about housing and homelessness services directly delivered or funded by the City.
