We need your help to house 100 people by the end of September.
The Ottawa Housing Blitz is a collaboration between the public, private and non-profit sectors that will help landlords fill vacancies and residents secure housing. Landlords with available units can fill out the survey here, and we will contact you within 2 days to follow up.
The City will match people in need of housing with appropriate units and rent support from available housing benefit programs. Priority will be given to people experiencing homelessness who qualify for subsidies, are ready to be housed and are currently looking for housing.
City Council declared an affordable housing and homelessness emergency and crisis in January. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the issue, with many residents lacking safe and affordable housing. Having a place to live is the first line of defence against the virus. Join the Blitz by spreading the word to landlords and be a part of the solution to ending homelessness in our community.
