Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information regarding subsidized housing in our Settlement.Org Am I eligible for subsidized housing? article.

In terms of getting subsidized housing, it is important to note that there are waiting lists for subsidized housing across Ontario. In some areas, the waiting list is more than 10 years. In other places the wait is shorter.

Regarding applying for subsidized housing, you can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org How can I apply for subsidized housing?article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
