Peel Housing Corporation
The growing need for affordable housing has been recognized consistently in Peel since the inception of Regional government. At that time, it had become apparent that the housing needs of a number of Peel residents were not being met by the private sector. In response, Regional Council passed a resolution in November 1975 to incorporate a non-profit housing organization, Peel Non-Profit Housing Corporation, being a separate entity or governing Board from that of the Regional Municipality of Peel. Effective January 1, 2003, Peel Regional Housing Corporation (PRHC), formerly the provincially operated Peel Regional Housing Authority (PRHA), amalgamated with Peel Non-Profit Housing Corporation to form the Peel Housing Corporation (PHC). Peel Housing Corporation is responsible for the administration of the Region’s public housing. The General Manager has overall responsibilities in the delivery of social, business/financial and property management services to residents and the Region of Peel.
The members of the Peel Housing Corporation Board of Directors are appointed until November 30, 2018, or until their respective successors are appointed or they otherwise cease to hold office.
