- Placement of eligible applicants in housing accommodation owned by private landlords.
- The tenant pays a monthly rent based on 30% of their household income

The following criteria apply for eligibility purposes:
Applicant's annual household income must meet the local core need income thresholds (CNITS)
Applicants must be Canadian Citizens or have Landed Immigrant Status.
As there are a limited number of subsidies, priority for assistance will be based on those in greatest need being helped first.
