Programs:

  • Investment in Affordable Housing- Extension Housing Allowance
  • Rent Supplement (Rent-Geared-To-Income)

How does the Rent Supplement Program Work?

The Landlord will enter into an Agreement with CKHS. CKHS will refer tenants to the landlord. If eligible and approved, the rent supplement will be paid to the landlord by CKHS.

Am I required to sign a Lease with the Tenant?

Yes. The rent supplement program requires the landlord to sign a lease with the tenant.

Does the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) apply to the tenancy?

Yes. A full landlord and tenant relationship exists between the landlord and the rent supplement program tenant.
