Why consultation isn't required
The purpose of this notice is to provide information on consultations regarding potential legislative changes, regulatory changes, policy and other matters as part of More Homes Built Faster: Ontario’s Housing Supply Action Plan: 2022-2023. Further details on the consultations and how to provide feedback can be found in each of the listed postings.
Everyone in Ontario should be able to find a home that is right for them. But too many people are struggling with the rising cost of living and with finding housing that meets their family’s needs.
Ontario’s housing supply crisis is a problem which has been decades in the making. It will take both short-term strategies and long-term commitment from all levels of government, the private sector, and not-for-profits to drive change. Each entity will have to do their part to be part of the solution to this crisis.
Ontario needs more housing, and we need it now. That’s why the Ontario government is taking bold and transformative action to get 1.5 million homes built over the next 10 years.
To support More Homes Built Faster: Ontario’s Housing Supply Action Plan: 2022-2023, the government introduced the More Homes Built Faster Act, 2022, which, if passed, would ensure that cities, towns, and rural communities grow with a mix of ownership and rental housing types that meet the needs of all Ontarians. These visionary changes will place Ontario at the forefront of housing policy in North America.
These changes are providing a solid foundation to address Ontario’s housing supply crisis over the long term and will be supplemented by continued action in the future. We welcome your thoughts on the following changes proposed under Bill 23, the proposedMore Homes Built Faster Act, 2022 and associated regulations:
