Community Housing


Winhome was the name of the City of Windsor Housing Company Limited and the City of Windsor Non-Profit Housing Corporation. For a number of years, Winhome was responsible for the organization, development and management of over 1170 affordable rental housing units for low and moderate-income residents of the City of Windsor, as well as units modified to accommodate the disabled.

Windsor Essex Community Housing Corporation (CHC)

On January 1, 2007, the two organizations that made up Winhome were amalgamated with the Windsor Essex County Housing Corporation (the former Windsor Housing) to form the Windsor Essex Community Housing Corporation (CHC).

The new Community Housing Corporation is responsible for the operation of a number of housing units in the City of Windsor and County of Essex.  Housing will be offered under three existing programs for families, seniors, and single adults.
