April 22 Build. More. Homes.
Ontario is facing a housing crisis. The Ontario Government’s Housing Task Force Report proposes that 1.5 million new homes be built over the next ten years.  Many barriers have been identified and solutions proposed by various organizations in recent months. Experts have cited labour shortages, increasing cost of materials, increasing government fees and charges, challenges with population forecasts, and speculative demand among other issues. There is no shortage of statistical evidence and rationale for how we got here. What seems to be in short supply is a comprehensive toolbox of actions that will aid provincial and municipal leadership in meeting the challenge head on now.
