DIVISION I
CATEGORIES AND SUBCATEGORIES OF DWELLINGS IN LOW RENTAL HOUSING
1. Dwellings in low rental housing are classified in categories A, B and C.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 1; O.C. 506-93, s. 1; O.C. 423-2011, s. 1.
1.1. For the purposes of this By-law, “handicapped person” has the meaning assigned by section 1 of the Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration (chapter E-20.1).
O.C. 423-2011, s. 2.
2. A category A dwelling may be allocated only to a household consisting of
(1)  at least one person aged 65 or older; or
(2)  at least one handicapped person who, due to motor disabilities, is likely to have difficulty entering a dwelling or moving around in it.
In the case referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph, a lessor may, by by-law, fix the minimum age of the other members of the household.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 2; O.C. 423-2011, s. 3.
3. A lessor of dwellings in low rental housing may, by by-law, reduce to not less than 50 the required age of any person referred to in subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 2. The by-law of the lessor may cover one, several or all of the buildings that it administers.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 3; O.C. 506-93, s. 2; O.C. 423-2011, s. 4.
4. A category B dwelling may be allocated only to a household consisting of one or more persons, aged under 65, who are spouses or relatives, within the meaning of article 655 of the Civil Code, up to the second degree.
The household may also include dependants within the meaning of section 23 of the Individual and Family Assistance Act (chapter A-13.1.1).
O.C. 1243-90, s. 4; O.C. 506-93, s. 3; O.C. 423-2011, s. 5.
5. Notwithstanding section 4, in any building or separate part of a building including both category A and category B dwellings, a category B dwelling may be allocated only to a household whose applicant or head of the household within the meaning of section 1 of the By-law respecting the conditions for the leasing of dwellings in low-rental housing, (chapter S-8, r. 3), is not less than 50 years of age and in which the dependant children are not less than 16 years of age.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the lessor may, by by-law, fix another age for the allocation of category B dwellings or allow them to be allocated to an applicant or head of the household who is a handicapped person without consideration of age.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 5.
6. A category C dwelling may be allocated only to a person who, because of his or her physical, emotional or psychosocial condition, needs special facilities or personal assistance services on-site, excluding food services.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the lessor may, by by-law, authorize the allocation of not more than 20% of those dwellings to persons other than those covered by the first paragraph.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 6; O.C. 423-2011, s. 6.
6.1. Where a dwelling is allocated to a household including a handicapped person, the household may include a caregiver.
A caregiver is a person who provides care and regular support, without remuneration, to another person of the person’s family circle.
O.C. 423-2011, s. 7.
7. Dwellings in low rental housing are also classified in subcategories, depending upon whether the dwelling is a room or studio apartment or according to the number of bedrooms.
Dwellings in low rental housing constructed or arranged with a view to their occupation by a handicapped person who, due to the person’s motor disabilities, is likely to have difficulty entering a dwelling or moving around in it also constitute a subcategory.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 7; O.C. 423-2011, s. 8.
8. A dwelling in low rental housing may be allocated, depending on the subcategory to which it belongs, only in accordance with the following rules:
(1)  a studio apartment shall be allocated to a single person;
(2)  the first bedroom shall be allocated to the head of the household and his spouse, if any;
(3)  an additional bedroom shall be allocated to any additional person included in the household; 2 persons less than 7 years of age shall share a bedroom;
(4)  an additional bedroom is allocated to a handicapped person whose disability or means used to compensate for the handicap prevents the person from sharing a bedroom;
(5)  a bedroom may be occupied by 2 persons of the same sex of 7 years of age or older;
(6)  if custody of a child is shared, an additional bedroom is allocated only if the child lives with the household in question at least 40% of the time.
The lessor may, by by-law, establish allocation conditions or criteria different from those provided for in this section in order to take into account the specifics of a shared custody order, the size of the dwelling or exceptional cases.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 8; O.C. 506-93, s. 4; O.C. 423-2011, s. 9.
DIVISION II
PUBLIC NOTICE OF SELECTION
9. When a dwelling is offered for lease for the first time, the lessor must publish a notice likely to reach persons residing in the territory where the dwelling is offered for lease. The same is applicable if the lessor expects to allocate a dwelling when the list of eligible persons is exhausted.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 9; O.C. 423-2011, s. 10.

(3)  the number of dwellings available by category and subcategory;
(4)  the conditions or criteria for acceptance of an application to lease and the conditions or criteria of eligibility for leasing;
(5)  the registration procedures including the address to which the application must be submitted and the time limit for submitting it, which must be not less than 30 days from the publication of the notice.

It may also, in a municipality of 50,000 or more inhabitants, define by by-law a selection territory smaller than the one it serves; the same applies where the municipality served results from the amalgamation of several municipalities.
O.C. 1243-90, s. 12; O.C. 506-93, s. 5.

(4)  (paragraph revoked);
(5)  an applicant who lives in a dwelling in low rental housing and whose health or safety or, where applicable, that of a member of his household, requires that he be relodged;

(2)  the age of the application for a lease: 2 points per year for a maximum of 6 points; and
(3)  the number of minor children who are in the custody of the applicant at least 40% of the time: 1 point per child.
Despite subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph, a lessor may, by by-law, allocate 6 points to households consisting of only one person when that person
(1)  is aged 65 or older and his or her income is equal to or less than the maximum amount that a person may receive as old age security pension and guaranteed income supplement under the Old Age Security Act (R.S.C. c. O-9); or

A lessor may provide, by by-law, for the allocation of additional points when one or more of the following situations occur:

Schedules 1, 2 and 3 establish the maximum income at which a household, according to the household type and the region concerned, has to spend more than 60%, 40% or 30% of the household income to afford the median market rent. The income provided for in those Schedules is adjusted annually on the basis of the median market rents established for the purposes of the Canada-Québec Global Agreement on Social Housing.
