Subject: Exclusion of CHPI Payments from RGI Income Calculation

Legislation Regulation checkbox Legislation/Regulation                                                          Release 13-01
Operational unchecked box Operational


The purpose of this notification is to inform Service Managers that an amendment to
section 50(3) of O. Reg. 298/01 under the Housing Services Act, 2011 has been approved.

This amendment will ensure that payments received under the Community
Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI) will not be considered income for the
purpose of geared-to-income rent calculation. This exclusion of income is consistent with
former program rules among the five consolidated programs.

The updated regulation has been filed and is available at
http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/regs/english/elaws_regs_010298_e.htm (English) and
http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/regs/french/elaws_regs_010298_f.htm (French)

Service Manager’s Responsibility


Please update all information to reflect the exclusion of payments received under the
CHPI and/or CHPI-funded programs as income for the purpose of geared-to-income rent calculation.

This exclusion is effective January 1, 2013.

Should you have any questions, please contact Mike Bannon, Manager, Housing and
Homelessness Program Consolidation by telephone at 416-585-6838, by facsimile at
