The City of St. Thomas' Ontario Works Department looks after the funding and overall administration of social housing programs in the City of St. Thomas and the County of Elgin.

Social Housing means rent-geared-to-income or subsidized housing programs. In most cases, rent is based on 30% of a household's gross income. Most social housing providers also offer some units at full market rent.

Subsidized housing is available at over 1,300 units in St. Thomas and Elgin County, including townhouses, apartments, duplexes, and single-family homes for families, singles, and seniors. Some supportive housing is available as well.
