Applying for Social Housing
- A centralized application system, known as the Central Housing Registry - Windsor Essex County (CHR-WEC) was established in November 2002.
- The Central Housing Registry receives applications, assesses eligibility and coordinates a common waiting list for housing providers who are mandated to participate in the centralized access system.
- Responsibility for administering this function, including appropriate accountability, was delegated by the Service Manager to the Windsor Essex Community Housing Corporation (CHC) under a Service Agreement.
