• Housing Providers

    Since 2008, IO has partnered with Housing Providers across Ontario to help provide access to affordable financing for capital investments.

    • An organization incorporated as a local housing corporation under Part III of the Social Housing Reform Act, 2000
    • A non-profit housing provider or co-operative housing provider that provides (or will provide) housing under a federally, provincially or municipally funded housing program in Ontario.

    • New construction projects
    • Facility expansion, renovation, retrofit or acquisition 
    • Energy efficiency projects (windows, doors, lighting, appliances etc.)
    • Water, hydro, HVAC

    Rates and Terms  

    IO’s lending rates provide equitable access to affordable financing for all clients. Please contact your Relationship Manager for today’s rate information. Housing Providers may select repayment terms of 5 to 25 years, to match the life of the capital asset.
