District Affordable Housing Programs

                                                                                                                    

In recognition of the need for more affordable housing across the District of Muskoka, the District provides several affordable housing programs.  These programs respond to a range of housing needs, particularly for low and moderate income households living and working in Muskoka.   The programs provide opportunities for affordable home ownership, affordable rents, development of new affordable housing, and funding for affordable home repairs.  

Are you looking for an Affordable Rental Unit?
