Summary

On April 5, 2019, the federal government announced a commitment of $1.34 billion in funding over nine years under the National Housing Co-Investment Fund to repair and renew Toronto Community Housing Corporation's aging social housing portfolio.

 

In order to activate this federal investment which is proposed to be provided to Toronto Community Housing Corporation through a combination of forgivable loans and repayable loans, this report seeks Council approval of the terms and conditions under the proposed Term Sheet (outlined in Confidential Attachment 1). The parties under the proposed Term Sheet are the City as guarantor, Toronto Community Housing Corporation as the borrower and the federal government through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation as lender.

 

The City and Toronto Community Housing Corporation are well-positioned to deploy the funding within the terms proposed by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Implementation will take place over nine years and will include the repair and renewal of the entire Toronto Community Housing Corporation portfolio comprising of 58,860 units.

 

Through this proposed partnership, the City will further its shared commitment with the federal government to improve the condition of Toronto Community Housing Corporation's portfolio and provide residents with access to safe, well-maintained and affordable homes.
