Previously considered an urban issue, housing affordability is now impacting communities of all sizes across Ontario, including Stouffville.
Meeting the provincial target of building 1.5 million homes by 2031 will require an all-hands-on-deck approach. The private, public, and non-profit sectors each have a critical role to play in fostering an inclusive labour force, championing affordable housing solutions, and promoting complete communities.
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce’s new policy brief showcases innovative partnerships and approaches underway across the province to address housing affordability, with policy recommendations for all levels of government and industry to build upon the success of these models. The brief was developed in partnership with Desjardins, Cadillac Fairview, and the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario, and in consultation with a diverse range of stakeholders, including the Ontario Chamber Network.
