Ontario Launches Public Consultations to Improve Access to Affordable Housing


Ontario Launches Public Consultations to Improve Access to Affordable Housing

April 14, 2015
Province Making Progress on Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy
Ontario is launching consultations to support a renewed Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy to ensure that the document supports the Province’s goals of improving outcomes for people and ending homelessness.

As referenced in the Poverty Reduction Strategy, the Province is aiming to end homelessness by making investments in homelessness prevention, expanding access to supportive housing, and investing in more affordable housing. Ontario is updating the Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy so that housing policies are relevant to current realities and reflect new research, best practices, and the housing needs of Ontarians.

The Consultation Discussion Guide outlines the progress of the current strategy, future goals and areas where more input from partners is needed. Participants can submit their views to the government online, by telephone or in writing by July 3, 2015.

Providing access to affordable housing is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

QUICK FACTS
• The Province launched its Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy in 2010, the first strategy of its kind for Ontario.
• The public can participate in consultations to support the Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy update. The consultation period closes on July 3, 2015.
