Social Housing Operational Advisory Committee (SHOAC)


The City of London Social Housing Transfer Plan identified a need to establish a consultation process to deal with social housing operational and policy implementation issues of concern to housing providers and their residents. 

This committee meets with staff of the Housing Division on a quarterly basis. The committee consists of one representative, plus an identified alternate, from the following: provincial non-profits, federal non-profits, provincial co-operative non-profits, the London & Middlesex Housing Corporation, the supportive housing sector, the London Housing Advisory Committee and the County of Middlesex.

It is encouraged that all issues and/or suggestions dealing with social housing be channeled through the committee for discussion/follow-up. These issues can then be acted on or communicated back to the housing providers and network partners for a greater sharing of information.  

The approved Terms of Reference outlining the function, composition, responsibilities and procedural practices for SHOAC is provided in "pdf" format.
