Anyone can apply for Social Housing however, not everyone will be eligible.  There are a number of factors that will determine if you can get subsidized housing. Click here to find out more about your eligibility for Social Housing.

Individuals and families who do not require subsidized housing and are interested in units in any of these buildings, can apply directly to each Social Housing Provider.
