Keynote: GTA Affordable Housing Panel
Ontario is currently experiencing a housing crisis. Existing affordable housing stock is limited and to make matters worse, the 2016 Census projects that the population of Ontario will grow by 38% by the year 2046, and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is poised to be one of the fastest-growing parts of the province.
How can planning, and planners, address current and future housing needs? Moderated by Jeanhy Shim, President & Founder of Housing Lab Toronto, this exclusive keynote panel will discuss these questions through the exploration of affordable housing initiatives from municipalities in the GTHA.

Panel Moderator: Jeanhy Shim, President of Housing Lab Toronto
