Get involved

Have your say about our services, programs and the decisions that impact you.

Foundation Housing encourages all tenants to get involved and provide input into the services we provide.

There are many ways you can get involved and guide decisions about your housing, neighbourhood and community. This includes attending contributing to the tenant newsletter, joining the Committee of Tenants and Residents and more.

Tenant Newsletter

We publish a Tenant Newsletter every quarter and you will receive this via email or in the mail. We welcome any contributions or submissions for the newsletter. This can be done by emailing

Committee of Residents and Tenants (CORT)

The CORT is made up of a variety of tenants and residents from across all our homes, who nominated to be part of this Committee. CORT elections are held every 2 years and meetings take place 6 times/year. CORT members feed into policy discussions, provide feedback on a range of issues which impact tenants and advise. This is an important voice for tenants within Foundation Housing and we encourage anyone with an interest in tenant representation to become involved. The CORT advise Foundation Housing on matters of tenant communication and how best to manage feedback on various issues. 

Visit our CORT page for more information.

Scholarship Program

Foundation Housing is committed to building the capacity of its tenants and residents by providing opportunities to access further education and development. Funding of up to $2,000 per scholarship will be offered to contribute to fees or expenses for a course chosen to undertake in the interest of furthering education and improving employment opportunities.

Visit our Scholarship Program page for more information.

Biennial Tenant Survey

All tenants are asked to complete our Tenant Survey which is sent out every 2 years. This is an opportunity for you to provide feedback (anonymously if you wish) about the services we provide. We will use the information gathered from the survey to improve our services to you.

Tenant and Resident Groups

Tenant and resident groups operate at many of our lodges or are created around specific issues. The groups will provide feedback regarding where they live or about a specific issue such as a policy or initiative. They are an opportunity to influence policy direction, provide feedback directly to staff or to feedback your views about a particular issue of interest to you.

Social Activities

Our Community Engagement team manages an annual calendar of events which are advertised through our newsletter. The events are aimed at bringing people together who might not usually have a chance to meet and provide a range of different social events that appeal to different tenant groups. Sometimes they are aimed at children, while others might be during the day and be more adult-appropriate. Please let your Housing Coordinator know if you are interested in such activities and be sure to keep an eye out in the newsletter when RSVPs are called for.

We welcome feedback and suggestions from all our tenants at any time. You can provide feedback and suggestions to us in many different ways, either by phone, via email, by completing the feedback form on our website, or through your Housing Coordinator.
