The federal and provincial governments partnered to fund the Ontario Renovates Program in Windsor and Essex County in 2019. The City of Windsor is the delivery agent for the program in Windsor and Essex County.

The Multi-Residential Rental Unit Program is intended to assist landlords of eligible affordable rental buildings to: 

  • Rehabilitate affordable units that require essential repairs, and/or
  • Modify affordable units to increase accessibility

For the purposes of this Ontario Renovates Multi-Residential Rental Unit Program, a Multi-Residential Rental Unit means one dwelling with a minimum of three rental units.

Funding is provided in the form of a 15-year forgivable loan registered to the property owner on the cost of approved eligible work items. For accessibility repair costs, up to the first $5,000 per unit may be in the form of a grant not a loan and does not require repayment. The amount of funding per rental unit may be up to a maximum of $50,000, but the average funding of all applications under the program cannot exceed $25,000 per unit. Priority consideration will be provided to applications that do not exceed the required program average of $25,000 per unit.
