Provincial Rent Bank Program

Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing



The Provincial Rent Bank Program is funded by the Province of Ontario. Under this program, tenants facing eviction for non-payment of rent can apply to the local rent bank to receive financial assistance. If a tenant’s application is approved, the outstanding rent is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of the tenant.

The program is administered by the province’s 47 Municipal Service Managers (SMs). If you are experiencing rent arrears, use the contact information listed by geographic region on the website.
