The Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario (CMHA Ontario) responded to Ontario’s Bill 140, Housing Services Act 2010 with a submission to the Standing Committee on Social Justice. The recently proposed Housing Services Act, 2010 replaces the Social Housing Reform Act, 2000 and is intended to enhance housing services to social housing tenants.
CMHA Ontario made six recommendations. The main recommendation clarified the role of supportive or supported housing and the role that other Ministries will have in this new Act.
