Welcome to The Registry

Welcome to the Web site of the Social Housing Registry for the City of Kingston and Frontenac County in Ontario, Canada.


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.
