Housing and Shelter

The Region of Peel offers several programs to help if you need to:

  • Receive housing subsidy
  • Find shelter if you are homeless
  • Renovate your home to make it more accessible

Apply for Housing Subsidy

If you can't afford the cost of rent, you can apply for more affordable housing where part of your rent is paid for. If you complete an application and you are found eligible, your name is added to a wait list for housing subsidy in Peel.

Keep Your Spot on the Housing Subsidy Centralized Wait List

If you've applied for housing subsidy and you are on the wait list, you let us know if there are any changes to your contact and personal information so we can keep your file up-to-date to maintain your place in line.

Find a Shelter

Locate a shelter and other housing support services, and access other emergency options.

Get Help Paying for Past-Due Bills or Rent

If you are behind in paying your bills, you may be able to get one-time financial help.

Get Help Paying for Home Renovations and Repairs

We offer seniors, persons with disabilities, low-to-moderate income individuals and families the opportunity to apply for homeowner funding to address safety and accessibility concerns.

Get Help Paying for Renovations for Your Second Unit

We offer one-time assistance to eligible homeowners to help cover the cost of renovations to an existing second unit.

Peel Housing and Homelessness Plan

The Peel Housing and Homelessness Plan (2018-2028) sets the direction for the work of the Region and its partners to increase affordable housing and prevent homelessness in Peel.
