How long do I have to wait for subsidized housing?
Generally, you have to wait a long time but some people, such as those experiencing abuse, may not have to wait as long.
There are waiting lists for subsidized housing across Ontario. In some areas, the waiting list is more than 10 years. In other places the wait is shorter.
People who have been on the
waiting list longer will be offered housing first. This is called first
come, first served. Certain applicants, such as people experiencing abuse, may receive priority and will be offered housing sooner.
You can contact a community agency or housing help centre for more information about subsidized housing. To find help in your area, go to Services Near Me.
