Social and community housing

LogementsVille de Gatineau is currently accepting plans for the construction of social and community housing. Approved projects will receive financial assistance covering up to 15% of eligible costs under the AccèsLogis Québec program, which is now run by Ville de Gatineau.

Eligible organizations

  • Not for profit organizations
  • Sociétés acheteuses à but non lucratif (not for profit organizations involved in property acquisitions)
  • Housing cooperatives
  • Office municipal d'habitation de Gatineau (OMHG)

Programme AccèsLogis Québec

This financial assistance program introduced by the Société d'habitation du Québec (SHQ) promotes the coordination of public, community and private resources to foster the construction of social and community housing for low- and moderate-income households, as well as for special needs clients in difficulty. For additional information about this program, consult the SHQ Web site at www.habitation.gouv.qc.ca.

Project selection

Gatineau has developed a guide to help it select the best projects in a rigorous and transparent manner, the Guide de gestion pour la sélection des projets de Logements sociaux et communautaires (in French only). The guide contains the principles that Gatineau plans to apply in selecting the housing projects that meet the AccèsLogis Québec program criteria and that will help make our community welcoming and inclusive. Preference will be given to projects that:

  • are located in an urban village with a balanced split between community and private housing;
  • foster a social mix and helps diversify the housing products offered immediately nearby;
  • are innovative and integrate sustainable development, design, flexibility and adaptability; and
  • meet the different municipal requirements and are likely to be quickly completed.

Consult the Guide de gestion pour la sélection des projets de logements sociaux et communautaires for additional information.

Approved projects will receive financial assistance covering up to 15% of eligible costs.

Gatineau reserves the right to turn down submitted proposals depending on the funding provided by the Government of Quebec.
