Housing Providers

The County of Wellington provides support and legislative oversight to 21 non-profit housing providers and housing co-operatives located in the County of Wellington and the City of Guelph.

Non-Profit Housing Corporations

Non-profit housing corporations are owned and operated by community-based organizations and are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

There are 17 non-profit housing providers in Wellington County and Guelph. Most of these provide housing to market rent tenants as well as households that pay geared-to-income rent. Market rent applicants apply directly to the non-profit.

Co-operative Housing Corporations

Living in a housing co-operative means that you are a member of the corporation that owns and manages the housing community. The governing Board of Directors is established from members of the co-operative. Co-operative members are expected to participate in the operation of their community.

There are 4 housing co-operatives in Guelph which offer both rent-geared-to-income and market rent housing.  Market rent applicants apply directly to the housing co-operative.


Review of Decisions System

Review of Decisions policy and procedures establish centralized system for reviewing potentially adverse decisions made by the CMSM and its providers with respect to applicants and clients of rent-geared-to-income units and special needs housing units. For more information follow this link.
