Canada-Manitoba Housing Benefit

The Canada-Manitoba Housing Benefit (CMHB) is a portable shelter benefit paid to eligible renters in core housing need.  The benefit is cost matched by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and Manitoba, and delivered by the province.  The benefit will reduce or eliminate housing need in vulnerable populations through affordability support.

Program Streams

Initially the benefit will target three vulnerable populations who need additional help with their housing costs:

  1. youth transitioning, or youth who have recently transitioned out of the care of the child welfare system
  2. individuals at risk of homelessness or who are homeless
  3. persons living with mental health and addiction issues in designated housing buildings
