Dufferin County Housing works with Co-operatives (co-op), Non-profits, and private landlords in Dufferin County to provide affordable housing.
Co-op Housing: Co-ops provide non-profit housing with security of tenure in good quality housing. As a member of a Co-op, you have the right and responsibility to take an active part in the decision making. Decisions are made in General Members Meetings, which members are expected to attend.
Non-Profit Housing: Community-based, affordable rental housing provided by non-profit corporations, overseen by a volunteer board of directors. A percentage of these tenants pay rents geared to their incomes (known as rent-geared-to-income housing), and the remaining pay market rents.
Rent Supplement Housing: Provides affordable housing with RGI rent. This is delivered through community partnerships with private sector landlords. The normal landlord/tenant relationship exists and the landlord is responsible for such things as rent collection, maintenance, repairs and services that exist with all tenants in the building.
