Annual rent review

Annual rent review

​​If you pay rent-geared-to-income, we will send you a rent review package once a year. The package includes forms that you must fill out to report the income of everyone in your household. You must complete and return these forms by the specified deadline. If you do not, you could lose your rent-geared-to-income subsidy.

Visit your Operating Unit or Property Management office or call the Client Care Centre at 416-981-5500 to set up an appointment if you need help completing these forms.

Documentation required for your annual rent review

The City of Toronto's Rent-Geared-to-​Income (RGI) Administration manual explains what documents are needed for the annual rent review process based on each household members' employment status and income sources. Toronto Community Housing is committed to meeting that standard so that we calculate your rent accurately, help you keep your subsidy and conduct consistent, fair and thorough reviews.

The How to show proof of household income and assets guide summarizes what documentation you need for your annual rent review.

Reporting changes to your income

If your income, asset or household composition changes outside of your normal annual review time, you must report the change in writing or in person to your Tenant Services Coordinator or Property Administrator within 30 calendar days of the change. If you do not report these changes, you could be charged for back rent or lose your rent-geared-to-income subsidy, or both. Learn more about reporting changes to you​r income.
