At the end of last week, Doug Ford’s government tabled its first Budget. We listened in via livestream and flipped through the Budget online, but we couldn’t find much regarding the Housing Supply Action Plan or housing affordability in Ontario.
According to a new report from the Centre for Urban Research and Land Development, there’s plenty of space for new transit oriented development, but outdated city bylaws are preventing new housing from being built.
Industry leaders are calling on the Ford government to take action to implement solutions to make it easier and more efficient to bring much-needed housing supply to market. The goal is to improve housing affordability specifically for millennials.
