I called Sudbury’ Housing Registry today and i learned 2 important things:
- Somebody in Sudbury whose housing is condemned by the City itself qualifies for Urgent Status which gives them priority access to Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) housing. This is very good news for you, because this is not the case in Toronto and this is why Toronto denied me access to the available RGI unit that Artscape had offered to me.
- I was told that i could have tried to apply for Urgent Status in Sudbury even if it was Toronto that had condemned my housing. Did i just miss my chance to move to Sudbury.
and, now, can i strongly encourage you to apply for RGI housing asap?
it will take time until a unit lands in your hands…
