How does the wait list work?

The Registry staff helps applicants select an "area of preference" and reviews housing mandates and eligibility criteria. Each month, the Social Housing Registry Program provides a waiting list to housing providers. It includes the names of all applicants who are eligible and/or have indicated a preference in their particular housing project. When a vacancy occurs, offers of accommodation are made to eligible applicants by individual housing providers — NOT by The Registry.
