Our programs

Section 95 of the National Housing Act (NHA) 

This federal program, which ran from 1979 to 1994 and was 100% funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), allowed the SHDM to build, buy, rehabilitate and manage quality rental housing at affordable prices in the territory of Montréal, i.e. offering rents below market price. The 2,082 housing units managed by the SHDM under this program, which include more than 1,100 independent living units for people over 55, are located in 144 buildings in seven boroughs.

Within the framework of the federal funding program related to housing units under Section 95 of the program, the SHDM has awarded subsidies to a portion of its tenants, according on their income.

In anticipation of the end of the operating agreements of the federal program under Section 95, the SHDM has taken the initiative to preserve its assets and those of its tenants. The SHDM wishes to continue to provide affordable housing to the city's population and mobilize its land assets to diversify or increase its offer and adapt to the new realities in housing.

Acquisition program for rental housing (PALL)

PALL is a Montréal program that underwent its acquisition phase from 1988 to 1995. Its objective was to contribute to the acquisition and renovation of housing, located primarily in disadvantaged neighbourhoods, in order to make it an urban revitalization tool. Once the SHDM had purchased and renovated the housing, it entrusted the management of the properties to non-profit organizations.

The 2,283 housing units created under the PALL program are available to all types of households. The SHDM and its managers then established partnerships to develop community support programs adapted to different clienteles. In several projects, organizations involved in community support are offered free rental space or are loaned spaces at modest rates to allow them to be closer to their clienteles.

Acquisition program for rooming houses (PAMAC) 

PAMAC is a Montréal program that underwent its acquisition phase from 1988 to 1995. Its goal is to maintain a range of rooming houses in central neighbourhoods of Montréal in the form highly affordable housing for unattached people in need.

NPOs ensure the daily management of these 309 rooms located in 11 buildings and provide community support for tenants with special needs. SHDM rooming houses serve a poorer clientele and, in particular, are among the mechanisms in place to fight homelessness in Montréal.

Accès Condos

Flagship of the Corporation’s urban revitalization and residential development mission, the Accès Condos program allows the SHDM and developers to share the risks inherent in real estate projects in destructured areas of Montréal. This sharing of the risks associated with sales enables the SHDM to obtain competitive fixed prices from developers. This is a key advantage that the Corporation passes along in part to buyers in the form of a purchase credit. The credit represents 10% of the sale price and reduces the buyer’s down payment to just $1,000, thus reducing the mortgage loan at the same time. Since its inception in 2005, the Accès Condos program has helped more than 3,600 households, 90% of which were first-time buyers and 34% of which were families, to acquire a quality property at a very competitive price while remaining in Montréal. To accomplish this, the SHDM signed 26 agreements with 17 different developers to create Accès Condos projects in 10 Montréal boroughs.
