Help for low-income tenants to pay rent

The Canada-Ontario Housing Benefit is a monthly program to help with housing costs.

The application process is not currently open, but you can check to see if you’re eligible.


You can apply if:

Households that are already receiving Ontario’s Portable Housing Benefit – Special Priority Policy (PHB-SPP) do not need to apply. They will automatically be transitioned to this new program.

Households receiving any additional support from Housing Services at the Region of Peel will be asked to choose to receive just 1 benefit.

How to apply

We’ll provide more details when the application process opens.
