Borden Housing Authority was established in 1983 to meet the need for low-income senior housing (55+) in the Village of Borden. Low cost housing is a joint venture between the Federal, Provincial and Local Governments.
Borden Housing Authority started in 1983 with 6 self contained 1 bedroom units. In 1989 Borden Housing Authority expanded, constructing Idylwyld Court. This is a low-rise building that houses two - 2 bedroom self contained suites and four - 1 bedroom suites. Two of these suites were constructed for the physically handicapped. A common room offers space for tenant social activities.
A one bedroom relocatable unit constructed in 2002 was moved into Borden, as there was a dire need for additional senior housing.
All units are constantly being upgraded and kept in excellent condition.
A Board of Directors appointed by the Federal, Provincial and Local Governments governs the Borden Housing Authority. They are volunteers and therefore get no remuneration. The Board is recruited by the Nominating Committee and are in turn appointed by a provincial ministerial order.
The Board is responsible for ensuring efficient and fair administration of the properties and projects within their jurisdiction. Their main concern is general policy and control. They hire a Housing Manager to coordinate the day-to-day operation of the housing, are responsible for reviewing the tenant selection process and hire a Caretaker who is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the properties.
Rent is based on 30% of gross monthly income. Minimum rent is $326/month. Maximum rent is capped at $715/month for a one bedroom suite, and $810/month for a two bedroom suite.
Rent includes 4 appliances (fridge, stove, washer, dryer), heat, water & sewer, garbage & recycling pick-up, building & yard maintenance.
