Report fraud

Report fraud

​​​Help keep money where it is needed most…

…in Toronto Community Housing properties for much-needed repairs and community investments.

Do you know someone in your community who…

Could be lying about their income or assets?

Hasn't reported everyone living in their household?

Could be renting out their apartment to someone else?

If you know someone doing this, money is being wasted.

You can help reduce waste by anonymously reporting fraud and waste in your preferred language.

Make sure your rents are well spent and stay in housing. Everyone who lives in a Toronto Community Housing community should report fraud, waste and dishonest activity if you see it occurring on Toronto Community Housing property.

If you see or think staff or another tenant has committed fraud don't ignore it. Report it immediately while the facts are still fresh in your mind.

Toronto Community Housing has hired SECURaLINE, an independent reporting service that lets you tell us your concerns anonymously on the Internet or by telephone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in your preferred language.
