AccèsLogis Québec

The AccèsLogis Québec Program encourages pooling of public, community and private resources to produce social and community housing for low- and moderate-income households and for people with special housing needs.

It allows housing bureaus, housing cooperatives, non-profit organizations and non-profit purchasing groups to create and offer quality, affordable rental housing.

Organizations considered to be intermediary resources are not eligible for AccèsLogis Québec.

The Program is divided into three components:

Component 1
For projects to create permanent dwellings for low- and moderate-income households (families, people living alone, independent seniors, independent disabled people).

Component 2
For projects to create permanent dwellings with services (e.g. meals, home support services, housekeeping) for seniors with slightly diminishing independence.

Component 3
For temporary, transitional or permanent dwellings with services for people with special housing needs, such as:

  • Temporary or transitional dwellings for people wishing to reintegrate society and live independently
  • Emergency shelters (rooms), including shelters for the homeless, battered women and people in difficulty
