Housing Providers

In 2000, the Province of Ontario transferred the responsibility for local community housing programs to the Region of Waterloo. Originally transferred under the Social Housing Reform Act, 2000, as of January 2012, the Housing Services Act, 2011, is now in place.

The Region now acts as a service manager and oversees 50 Housing Providers (co-operative and non-profit housing corporations). Providers are accountable to the Region for their operations, including:

  • Governance
  • Financial reporting
  • Overall compliance with Ontario's Housing Services Act
  • Federal operating agreements.
