Founded in 1988, ONPHA is an independent association funded and directed by its members.

We believe that secure, decent and affordable housing is a human right and fundamental social

determinant of health. It has the power to change lives and is the foundation of vibrant and

successful communities.



As advocates, we raise awareness of the critical role that affordable rental housing plays in

Ontario. As capacity builders, we educate our members and offer them the training and resources

they need to develop their skills and offer their tenants high-quality homes. As an association, we

bring our members together and recognize and celebrate their diversity and the incredible work

they do every day.



ONPHA is home to more than 700 non-profit housing providers. From Windsor to Cornwall,

Toronto to Thunder Bay, our members house more than 400,000 people in 163,000 homes

across 220 Ontario communities. They are a critical part of the fabric of every community

and provide decent, affordable homes to low and moderate income households. Many of our

members provide specialized housing and support services for Ontarians who need help to enjoy a

successful tenancy.
