Technical Advisory Services
The Region of Peel as Service Manager is responsible for the funding and administration of social housing in Peel. This includes ensuring that the existing social housing stock does not deteriorate and bear a burden for the resident or the building owner. With an aging housing stock - some non-profit buildings near 30 years old – the Region has a strong interest in preserving and maintaining good housing for years to come.
In 2010, the Housing Programs team expanded to include Technical Advisory Services. Providing specialized expertise on building science, Technical Advisory Services assists local non-profit housing providers in an advisory capacity on maintenance and capital issues.
