About B’nai Brith Canada’s Affordable Housing Program
B’nai Brith Canada is a premier provider of sustainable, affordable housing in Canada. We began our Affordable Housing Program in 1979 in an effort to provide and maintain affordable, secure and welcoming housing for low to moderate income and disabled residents, in a friendly and culturally familiar setting.
Our Buildings help ensure that individuals have access to subsidized, affordable, and well-maintained housing. However, like all affordable housing initiatives, the demand far exceeds the supply of units, and there is a lengthy waiting list. B’nai Brith’s unique approach to affordable housing combines market rent units with rent-geared-to-income units so that the residents of our buildings don’t know who is in which kind of unit. All of our units are maintained to the same high standards. Access to our rent-geared-to-income units are controlled by Toronto Housing and the wait list they maintain.
WE ARE PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE. B’nai Brith Canada is the country’s oldest independent Jewish Human Rights organization. We are a principled grassroots voice, dedicated to eradicating racism, antisemitism and hatred in all its forms, championing the rights of the marginalized, while providing basic human needs for members of the community.
B’nai Brith’s wide-ranging educational and social programming, community and volunteer services, and human rights initiatives provide a source of connection, continuity and support to Canada’s Jewish community.
We are a completely self-funded organization, and we rely entirely on the generosity of individual supporters, like you, to allow us to succeed.
