Community housing refers to housing that is owned and operated by non-profit housing corporations, housing co-operatives, and municipal governments. Community housing providers offer geared-to-income (RGI) and/or moderate market rents for eligible households. For the purposes of this data, community housing is synonymous with social housing.
Rent supports are government-funded payments that bridge the gap between what a household can afford to pay and what the actual cost of housing is. Rent supports can be used for both private market and community housing units, depending on the type of support, the funding stream, and the program to which they are connected. These rental units constitute a non-permanent form of subsidized housing.

‘Affordable housing’ refers to rental units constructed in which rents are maintained at or below 80% of Average Market Rent (AMR) for at least 20 years. This includes units built in both the community housing and private market sectors.

 Rent Supplement: A type of rent support that is tied to a particular unit, often in the private market. Eligible households pay a portion of the rent according to an income formula and the landlord receives a supplement for the balance of the market rent for the unit.
 Housing Allowance or Portable Housing Benefit: A housing benefit provided directly to eligible households, usually in the private market. It is tied to the household and moves with them.
Wait time depends on size of accommodation required and location.
