Local governments may own and manage non-profit housing corporations where the local municipality is the sole shareholder of the corporation.
Service clubs, ethnic or faith communities who develop and manage housing for low-income households usually do so by creating a private non-profit housing corporation run by a board of directors.

Co-operatives are self-managed by the members who live in the co-operative. Members form a Board of Directors and participate on committees to assist with functions such as property maintenance. The members make decisions through a democratic process and everyone is entitled to have a voice in the co-operative's operations. Co-operative members require a personal commitment to their housing community
Non-Profits and Private Owners own and manage affordable rental housing which offers rents at the average market rent or 20% below the average market rent.
Rent Supplement Housing
Tenants living with private landlords may be eligible for rent-geared-to-income (RGI) subsidies under rent supplement programmes. Tenants must be eligible for the Centralized Waiting list. Subsidies are paid directly to the private landlord, and tenants enter into a lease with the landlord, and provide rent-geared-to-income payments to the landlord. RGI rents are calculated by the County of Wellington Housing Services.
