OREA has been taking part in a provincial roundtable convened as a result of the Ontario Fair Housing Plan. The roundtable’s goal is to produce an action plan to address the artificial barriers holding back housing supply.
OREA’s specific recommendations around
- tying infrastructure investment to better zoning by municipalities for more housing;
- cutting red tape for a more streamlined development approvals process; and
- a commitment for home development intensification along transportation corridors
were all incorporated into the Province’s action plan, which will streamline the residential development approval process and bring needed housing to market more quickly and efficiently.
