The City administers funding from the federal and provincial governments for affordable housing and homelessness. This involves:

  • agreements with the other orders of government.
  • preparing and administering requests for proposals when funding is available.
  • providing administrative support to the Community Housing Advisory Board, which makes recommendations to City Council on funding decisions.
  • preparation and monitoring of contracts to the organizations and developers in the community who implement and fund projects.
