We Follow Provincial, Regional and Municipal Law
Our organization is overseen by a group of committed, professional people who volunteer their time to run our Board. The Board provides oversight and strategic direction to our staff and ensures long term planning and sound financial and risk management are in place.
Our annual operating expenses are paid through rent from tenants and provincial subsidies managed by the County of Wellington Housing Services. We also save money from year-to-year to replace things like heating boilers, mechanical systems and upgrades to our elevators.

We work hard to minimize our impact on the environment. We have installed energy efficient boilers and make up air units and LED lights in all of our lighting fixtures which reduces the kilowatt hours of energy use.Our tenants play an important role in our commitment to sustainability.
