Preventing Homelessness in Peel Program (PHIPP)

Purpose | Eligibility

The Preventing Homelessness in Peel Program (PHIPP) initiative is managed and administered by Community Programs Unit.


PHIPP provides one-time financial assistance for utility arrears and/or mortgage or rental arrears to eligible residents who need help securing or maintaining affordable accommodation. In some situations, PHIPP will also assist with landlord-tenant mediation to prevent eviction. To access this service, please call 905-793-9200.


The Preventing Homelessness in Peel Program helps Region of Peel residents who:
  • Intend to continue living in Peel
  • Are under threat of eviction, or are currently homeless or residing in a temporary shelter
  • Have exhausted all options for financial and housing supports, including friends and family
  • Are not eligible for assistance under the Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Programs
  • Are not eligible to receive more appropriate assistance from any other agency
  • Do not require PHIPP services as a result of a labour dispute

Ontario Works completes a needs test for all PHIPP applicants, therefore, an application for Ontario Works must be completed before a referral to PHIPP is made.
