Housing at the Mount Community Centre
The Mount Community Centre (TMCC) has apartments with various floor plans. There are studio/bachelor (combined living room and bedroom), and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. Tenants must be able to live independently, as there are no supports and/or programs.
The Mount Community Centre apartments are not Rent Geared To Income.
At this time all the apartments we have fall within the City's Affordable Housing Rent guidelines which means that property owners are not eligible to apply, and a household cannot make in excess of a certain annual income.
2020 Maximum Annual Household Income threshold are as follows:
Studio/Bachelor = $ 28,260
1 Bedroom = $ 33,912
2 Bedroom = $ 39,744
All apartments have a kitchen (fridge and stove) and bathroom; some bathrooms have tubs with a shower, others just a shower and no tub. Other features include: in-suite wiring for telephone, cable, and internet (tenants are responsible for securing their provider and monthly costs), assigned parking, interior mail box, window blinds, and individual hot water tanks. Monthly rents are dependent on the square footage of the apartments, and include heat and hydro costs. Parking spaces cost an additional $10 per month. Twelve month leases and the first and last month rents are required.
Please note that rents increase by an amount set by the province on the anniversary of the move-in date
The Mount Community Centre aspires not just to be a landlord but to be a community. We will strive to be inclusive and rent to a wide variety of people. Garden plots are available for annual rent, "Tenant Information Sessions" occur, and all who live at TMCC (and their guests) are welcome to visit the Fulcrum Cafe. There are lovely grounds to wander, close proximity to a bus stop, and a tenant Common Room.
The Mount Community Centre is a non-smoking building and property, but there is a Designated Smoking Area on the property.
There are no assistive living services/programs at The Mount Community Centre. Tenants must be able to live independently.
We only show our apartments to applicants who have been offered an apartment after they have been interviewed and recommended for one.
The Mount Community Centre does not keep a "Wait List" for apartments.
Peterborough Housing Corporation (PHC) is the Property Manager for The Mount Community Centre. Its staff manage all of the day to day operations and maintenance of the apartments.
