AccèsLogis Montréal

Last updated September 13, 2021

AccèsLogis Montréal is a co-operative and not-for-profit housing program that finances social and community housing projects.


AccèsLogis Montréal is the result of an agreement between Montréal and the Government of Québec. This program has the same structure and mission as the AccèsLogis Québec program. It also serves the same clienteles. The difference is that AccèsLogis Montréal is adapted to the Montréal context, particularly the budget standards.

AccèsLogis Montréal is a shared-cost program: Subsidies come from the Société d’habitation du Québec (SHQ) and the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM).


The AccèsLogis Montréal program provides financial assistance for social and community housing projects submitted by:

  • A cooperative
  • A non-profit organization
  • The Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal

The housing units built within this program are intended for low- and moderate-income households, and for people with special housing needs.

To develop their project and request financial assistance, project developers must consult expert consultants known as Technical Resource Groups (TRGs). 

These groups act as intermediaries between people and organizations that want to develop social and community housing projects and the Service de l’habitation.

TRGs ensure that housing projects are socially and economically viable. They are recognized partners of Montréal and of the Société d’habitation du Québec in the implementation of the AccèsLogis Québec program.

Four TRGs provide support to promoter partners and offer advice on how to co-operate effectively and prepare files. They can also assist with financial and architectural aspects of social and community housing projects:

The terms and conditions of an AccèsLogis Montréal subsidy are set out in the Montréal’s By-law 02-102 concerning subsidies for the development of non-profit cooperative housing.
