Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this situation.

Generally, if you are living in a subsidized unit, you must inform your housing provider about changes to your situation that might affect your rent subsidy.

You may want to try and contact a Community Legal Clinic to see if it is possible for them to provide some assistance. Please note, some Community Legal Clinics do not provide services related to subsidized housing or rent-geared to income type situations. In this case, they may be able to provide a referral or information regarding this type of situation.

You may be required to work with your housing provider directly and find out what their processes are regarding these type of situations, for example if it is possible to appeal a decision.

You may also want to contact 211 to see if they have any additional information.

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.
