Currently there is a waiting list for social housing in Peel. You will be placed on this waiting list once you have submitted a complete application and have been determined eligible for social housing. Because of the high demand for subsidized housing the wait may take many years.
Your application will be returned if your forms are not completely filled out or if any necessary documents are missing. You will not be placed on the waiting list until your application is complete.
