The Housing Crisis
The housing crisis is headline news in Ontario and across Canada. It’s also a top priority for the professional planners who are immersed in the intricacies of this complex, multifaceted issue. Finding equitable solutions means examining a multitude of critical considerations, including climate change, infrastructure, Indigenous rights, transportation, affordability, technology, employment, schools, health care, green space, and so much more. The theme for the Spring/Summer issue of Y Magazine is “the housing crisis” and looks at how Ontario’s planning profession is bringing the best people to the table to find solutions that meet housing needs now and into the future.
Professional planners are innovative thinkers by nature. Their day-to-day work involves exploring new ideas, examining different perspectives, and finding creative ways to resolve the biggest issues being faced in our communities. It means having a deep understanding of the realities of today and being able to look forward decades into the future to inform decisions that lead to and ensure sustainability, security, equity, and inclusion. The theme for Fall/Winter issue of Y Magazine is “innovation” and takes readers on a journey of discovery into the many perspective-altering ways planners are addressing challenges and inspiring the communities of tomorrow.
