About the program

get funding for your building renovations

The Affordable Housing Renovation Program (or Réno logement abordable) is intended for buildings of five storeys or less with six apartment units or more.

At least a third of the accommodation must be rented out at affordable prices for the district in which the building is located. The condition of the building must also be deemed neither too good nor too bad by city inspectors (this equates to a level 3 or 4 out of 6 on the city-standardized scale).

Once your application has been accepted, you will be required to hire building experts to perform tests or inspections, to monitor the site, and to produce plans and specifications based on their expert opinions.

The work must target elements essential to the preservation of the building or the health of its occupants. Some work is mandatory, such as replacing an oil heating system or a private lead water inlet, exterminating vermin and correcting health and safety problems. Other work could include mold removal, asbestos abatement or water damage restoration. For such tasks, you can rely on our expert team at Mold Busters in Montreal.

You will not be able to evict tenants, nor enlarge or subdivide the dwellings. Other restrictions may apply depending on your circumstances.

How much funding is available?
