Affordable Housing & Homelessness

Thanks to Sheila Lacroix, CFUW Leaside-East York, Ontario Council has sent comments to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing concerning the review of the Provincial Policy Statement concerning housing and land use.  This is continuing work based on the adopted Ontario Council resolution on “Housing for all through sustainable and mixed urban development in Ontario (2018)”

Our concerns were summarized as:

  • increasing housing supply at the expense of the environment; and
  • obstructing municipalities in continuing with official plans committed to providing mixed housing, including rental and non market housing, supported by adequate infrastructure and community benefits.

Here, you’ll find a number of resources to help you learn and advocate for Affordable Housing and Homelessness.
