As the largest social and affordable housing provider in Ottawa and the second largest in Ontario, we manage two-thirds of the City’s social housing portfolio.

Through our vision, mission and values, OCH provides homes that link people in need to supports and services that can help them lead healthy, safe and fulfilling lives. Call Centre, maintenance and community safety services are available to the tenants 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While we are a non-profit organization, funded by and operating at arm’s length from the City of Ottawa, OCH operates a lean, high-functioning business model, with a social purpose that is well regarded across the social housing sector in Canada and abroad.
