Tips To Keep Your Place On The Waiting List

Stay Connected.
If your contact information changes, tell us right away. We will make your file inactive if we cannot contact you. You cannot be offered housing if your file is inactive.

Keep Your Application Up To Date.
The government regulations for social housing make it your responsibility to keep your application up to date. If you do not tell us about changes in your information, you could lose your place on the waiting list. Access to Housing will also review your eligibility once a year.

Stay Eligible.
Every member of your household must continue to meet the five conditions listed under Who can apply for subsidized housing?

Review Your Needs Regularly.
Review your housing needs regularly and tell us right away if your needs or preferences change. Remember, you only get three offers of housing. If you turn down three offers (excluding rent supplement units) your name will be removed from the waiting list and you will have to re-apply and start at the bottom of the waiting list again. So contact Access to Housing if you need to update your building selections.
