Kingston & Frontenac Housing Corporation (KFHC) was established as a local housing corporation as a result of the Province of Ontario’s passing of the Social Housing Reform Act, 2000. KFHC was transferred to the City of Kingston in January 2001 as part of the overall transfer of all former Federal/Provincial housing providers. The City of Kingston is the sole shareholder of KFHC.

The housing portfolio includes semi-detached, row housing and apartment ranging in size from bachelor to five bedroom units.
KFHC buildings range in age from 58 years old to brand new buildings. KFHC strives to ensure the buildings are well maintained through upgrades to the physical exterior and interior elements of the buildings in addition to new heating systems.
The tenant associations work collaboratively with KFHC to increase energy efficiency, engage tenants and to improve safety issues.
