Units must be affordable for our tenants, which is why we provide a variety of housing options that suit individual and family needs along the housing continuum starting at rent geared-to-income units and currently ending with assisted homeownership and home repair assistance. Rents are set at rates ranging from 25 percent of gross income (core need) to 80 percent of market (affordable).

FIMUR Assisted Homeownership
and Home Repair Programs

In September 2014, the FIMUR program was extended under the Investment in Affordable Housing Program and OAHS was allocated a five-year notional funding of $30.5 million and launched the First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban and Rural 2014/20 Housing Program.  Homeownership and Repair loans are forgiven after 10 years.

Applicants are encouraged to apply even though there is a waiting list for each program.  Please note that priority applicants for the FIMUR Homeownership Program (those escaping violence and/or living in social housing) are particularly encouraged to apply as there is not currently a waiting list for priority applicants.  Although new applications are being accepted, there can be no assurance of future funding availability and the waiting list status may change at any time without notice.

To receive additional information regarding these programs, please contact Karen Benford, Administrative Assistant, Programs Delivery 866-391-1061 ext. 318 or

Request for Proposals ~Year 5 ~ 2018/2019 Allocation

The “First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban and Rural 2014/20 Housing Program” is intended to target gaps where significant demonstrated need has been identified, but provision of Aboriginal Housing through previous programs has not taken place. Preference will be given to communities that have been identified based on the incidence of low to medium income households that have not received “First Nation, Inuit, Métis Urban and Rural Housing Program” rental allocations. Some of those communities are Kitchener, Parry Sound, Moosonee, Moose Factory, Manitoulin Island, Petawawa, Pembroke and Renfrew. In addition, proponents who have densification opportunities available (i.e. land and/or buildings purchased with prior funding that would support additional development) that would allow additional units to be efficiently delivered, may apply. To encourage economical use of all resources, including land acquired or optioned during previous programs, additional units may be built on existing serviced land that is suitably zoned.

Launch Date: August 10, 2017

Indigenous Supportive Housing Program (ISHP) 2017/18

Expression of Interest 2017/2018 Allocation

The Indigenous Supportive Housing Program (ISHP) is a component of the Supportive Housing Investment, which was developed by the Ministry of Housing (MHO). The ISHP is specifically designed to be administered by Indigenous organizations for Indigenous people in need of housing and support services. ISHP is comprised of two funding streams: ISHP Operating Funding and ISHP Capital Repayment Funding. Operating Funding is to be used to provide housing assistance and/or support services to help eligible Indigenous recipients obtain and retain stable housing. Housing assistance can be rent supplements (rent subsidies tied to a rental unit and paid directly to housing providers) and Housing Allowances (portable rent subsidies paid directly to recipients). ISHP Capital Repayment Funding is to be used to increase the supply of physical supportive housing units. Both transitional and long-term supportive housing projects are eligible. Completed units must also be linked to housing assistance and/or support services. Eligible capital projects include: new construction, including additions and extensions; acquisition and/or rehabilitation of existing residential buildings to maintain or increase the affordable rental housing stock; or conversion of non-residential buildings or units to purpose-built rental buildings/units.

Launch Date: August 10, 2017

The Rural and Native Housing Program – Rental Housing

The Rural and Native Housing (RNH) Program provides rent geared-to-income housing to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people considered to be in CORE housing need in areas in Ontario with a population of 2,500 or less. Homes are located in rural locations outside of the city limits and the majority are 3-bedroom bungalows equipped with a fridge and stove.

Urban Native Housing Program – Rental Housing

The Urban Native Housing Program developed by Canada Mortgage and Housing Program was made available to First Nation, Métis and Inuit people that met provided income guidelines. This provided  Aboriginal people 100% capital funding and a fixed long-term mortgage interest rate. The program was devolved to service managers and District Social Services Administration Boards with the Federal Operating Agreements intact. Individual subsidy agreements were for a 35 year term, expiring between 2024 and 2029. OAHS has acquired some of these homes under their portfolio.
