27. The classification criteria and the number of points that may be awarded for each criterion are as follows:
(1)  the applicant’s income is below the income established in Schedule 1, 2 or 3 according to the type of household and the region concerned: respectively 6, 4 or 2 points;
(2)  the age of the application for a lease: 2 points per year for a maximum of 6 points; and
(3)  the number of minor children who are in the custody of the applicant at least 40% of the time: 1 point per child.
Despite subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph, a lessor may, by by-law, allocate 6 points to households consisting of only one person when that person
(1)  is aged 65 or older and his or her income is equal to or less than the maximum amount that a person may receive as old age security pension and guaranteed income supplement under the Old Age Security Act (R.S.C. c. O-9); or
(2)  has an income equal to the maximum amount that a person may receive under the Social Solidarity Program, as established in the Individual and Family Assistance Regulation (chapter A-13.1.1, r. 1).
A lessor may provide, by by-law, for the allocation of additional points when one or more of the following situations occur:
(1)  the applicant is a handicapped person who, due to the person’s motor disability, cannot enter his or her domicile or move around in it safely to perform daily activities;
(2)  the dwelling occupied by the applicant is located in an environment that is prejudicial to the applicant;
(3)  the applicant meets general criteria to ensure greater social harmony in the immovables managed by the lessor; or
(4)  the applicant resides in the selection territory of the lessor, is a handicapped person having a motor disability likely to prevent the applicant from entering a dwelling or moving around in it and the immovable concerned includes category C dwellings only.
The total of the points allocated in the situations covered by the third paragraph may not exceed 5 points.
Schedules 1, 2 and 3 establish the maximum income at which a household, according to the household type and the region concerned, has to spend more than 60%, 40% or 30% of the household income to afford the median market rent. The income provided for in those Schedules is adjusted annually on the basis of the median market rents established for the purposes of the Canada-Québec Global Agreement on Social Housing. The Société informs the public annually of the indexation by a notice published in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
