Documentation required for your annual rent review
The City of Toronto’s Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) Administration manual explains what documents are needed for the annual rent review process based on each household member’s employment status and income sources. Toronto Seniors Housing is committed to meeting that standard so that we calculate your rent accurately, help you keep your subsidy and conduct consistent, fair and thorough reviews.
The How to show proof of household income and assets guide summarizes what documentation you need for your annual rent review.
Reporting changes to your income
If your income, asset or household composition changes outside of your normal annual review time, you must report the change in writing or in-person to your Tenant Services Coordinator within 30 calendar days of the change. If you do not report these changes, you could be charged for back rent or lose your rent-geared-to-income subsidy, or both.
