WHAT WE DO
The Registry was established on October 1, 2002, to meet one of the many requirements of the Service Manager (The City of Kingston) under the Social Housing
Reform Act, 2000, and corresponding regulations. The Registry is an independent department of Kingston & Frontenac Housing Corporation (KFHC) and operates
pursuant to an agreement between KFHC and the City of Kingston under the direction of City Council.
The Social Housing Registry of Kingston and Frontenac ("THE REGISTRY") manages the application process for rent-geared-to-income (RGI) assistance for the
seventeen (17) housing providers participating in the centralized waiting list. (See our Housing Providers page for more information.)
This "one stop shopping" allows applicants to apply to more than one housing provider by completing only one application form for RGI assistance. The Registry
staff is pleased to assist applicants in making selections for "area of preference" and will review housing mandates and eligibility criteria with applicants
upon request. All applications for RGI assistance are processed through the Registry. The Registry determines applicant eligibility. Each month, the Social
Housing Registry of Kingston and Frontenac provides to the participating housing providers a waiting list which includes the names of all
applicants who are eligible and/or have indicated a preference in their particular housing project. When a vacancy occurs, offers of accommodation are made to
eligible applicants by individual housing providers -- not by The Registry
Effective October 1, 2002, applications can be obtained and submitted to THE REGISTRY or any access point. For details on "How to apply for rent-geared-to-income
assistance" please click on the additional Public Information on this Web site or contact The Registry by phone at 546-5591 or by
