The following programs have been approved to deliver services starting October 1. All applications were carefully evaluated by the City’s Housing Secretariat through a comprehensive review process.
Housing access programs support individuals and households who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness by helping them find and maintain housing. Services are aligned with the City’s Housing First approach by prioritizing the acquisition of housing that meets the client’s needs. Some people might require specialized supports and face multiple barriers to securing and maintaining housing, and these services are designed to be responsive to individual needs.
