Huu-ay-aht is launching a new Healthy Home Initiative which is part of Recommendation two from the Assess Existing Anacla Housing Stock in the final report of the Independent Housing Panel. This initiative aims to reduce the cost of living for citizens by identifying and implementing energy efficiency measures, increase self-sufficiency by generating energy for the community, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and co-create an energy vision and actionable plan reflecting desires and needs of Huu-ay-aht citizens.
Annual income review 20 (1) By June 15 of each year, the tenant of the unit must (a) supply their previous year’s notice of assessment from Canada Revenue Agency, and (b) provide any other information the housing authority requires in order to assess their income within reasonable timelines set by the housing authority.

(3) If the tenant continues to qualify for the unit, the housing authority will give at least two full calendar months’ notice of any increase in their rent effective no later than September 1 of the year in which the information under subsection (1) was provided. The Huu-ay-aht Housing Regulations can be found on the website.
Here is what you will need to do:
File your income taxes with the Canada Revenue Agency. The deadline for filing taxes is April 30, 2023. You can do these yourself either online (Turbotax for example) or pick up an income tax package, fill it out, and mail it in. Or you can have an accountant company do it for you.
You will receive your Notice of Assessment after you file your taxes. You will receive this either by mail or digitally to your online account at Canada.ca if you have created an account.
Once you have received your Notice of Assessment, you will have to submit that to the Housing Coordinator for review. The deadline for this is June 15, 2023.
