Tenant Participation Resource Services Program (TPRS)

The Tenant Participation Resource Services Program (TPRS) is a FACS initiative to provide social housing tenants with increased access to information, advice and opportunities to more actively participate in processes related to their housing, as well as to engage in their communities.

The TPRS Program goals are to ensure social housing tenants:

  • are engaged in communities
  • have their needs and priorities identified and considered in planning and service delivery
  • are informed about their rights and responsibilities and are supported with their housing needs
  • have the skills and resources to participate in community life
  • receive services that are coordinated, flexible and responsive to their needs.

Program Guidelines

The Tenant Participation Resource Services Program Guidelines provide detailed information about what is expected of the service providers, their roles and responsibilities, how they are funded and other operational information.
