Social Housing Registry
The Social Housing Registry of Ottawa (The Registry) is a non-profit organization that maintains the central waiting list for people applying for rent-geared-to-income (RGI) housing. The Registry keeps the list according to rules set out by the Province of Ontario in the Housing Services Act, 2011.
The Registry includes housing providers and community housing agencies working together to make it easier to apply for subsidized housing in Ottawa.
Housing Help is a nonprofit charitable agency providing assistance to people in the City of Ottawa who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, to access and maintain appropriate and affordable housing.
Staff work with individuals and families to prevent evictions, resolve landlord and tenant disputes, educate tenants about their rights and responsibilities and help them find affordable rental housing.
