The Habitat Model

The Habitat Model

The Habitat model is unique in Ontario. It is based on a contract between Habitat Services, a non-profit agency, and the owners of private sector and non-profit boarding homes. Habitat Services provides regular monitoring of the houses and apartments to ensure compliance with the contract and its attached standards. On-site housing support services for tenants are provided by staff of either Habitat Services or Cota. Habitat Services funds and monitors 45 boarding homes and 31 self-contained apartment units at sites across the City of Toronto. Habitat funded homes and apartments provide housing for 1001 adults and are permanent housing, with the exception of two sites that offer transitional housing.
