Advisory committees of tenants in low-rent housing and ENHARMONIE (CCR)

These two committees assess tenants’ needs and priorities and make recommendations to the board with regard to budget priorities, services offered, improvements to the living environment, etc.

The advisory committee of tenants in low-rent housing is made up of tenants’ representatives who take part in sectoral committees.

Each residence in the ENHARMONIE network appoints two representatives to sit on the ENHARMONIE advisory committee. Two board members also sit on this committee.

In addition to the tenants’ advisory committees (CCR), the OMHM accompanies other tenants’ consultative and participative forums. These are:

  • tenants’ associations (the OMHM has more than 100 of these representing more than 10,000 tenants in low-rent housing);
  • three sectoral committees (which discuss the various challenges in different geographical sectors);
  • the maintenance and janitorial services auditing committee;
  • the committee on change of housing for bio-psycho-social reasons;
  • the MOUV (for young people aged between 12 and 25).
