Y Magazine will publish three issues in 2020 focusing on the following topics:
As home and condo prices soar in Ontario, many communities are struggling to provide housing for residents, including a variety of housing types for a diverse population. Economic, social and political issues affect the ability of communities to provide housing, provide the conditions for housing to be built and ensure residents of all ages and abilities are properly housed. The Winter 2020 issue will look at the specific stories and work being done by planners to inform the choices made by local communities to address this issue.
Aging residents, newcomers and immigrants, children, young adults, adults taking care of kids and parents and everyone in between - how do planners plan for communities that take into consideration a variety of different ages and abilities? What are communities across Ontario doing to accommodate aging populations or an influx of newcomers and still make their communities feel like home and not a community of strangers? Our Spring/Summer issue will look at how planners are addressing demographic challenges and what the opportunities are in focusing on this issue.
Canada is undergoing renewal and change with respect to its relationship with Indigenous communities across the country. Ontario is home to many indigenous people and communities seeking a greater voice and place. Reconciliation by non-Indigenous Canadians is a multi-generational process and in order to begin that process, hard truths must be exposed, discussed and acknowledged. Our Fall issue will explore these truths and how planners play an important role in working alongside Indigenous Peoples and communities to begin walking down the path of Reconciliation together.
