Proposal summary

The government is consulting to inform the development of an action plan to help increase the supply of ownership and rental housing in Ontario.

Proposal details

A strong demand for housing and limited supply in Ontario has resulted in rapidly rising housing costs over the last few years. In high-growth urban areas, high prices and rents have made it too hard for people to afford the housing they need. High prices also affect other parts of Ontario, including northern and rural communities, where a lack of supply has made ownership more difficult and quality rental housing hard to find.

To help increase the supply of housing in Ontario, the government is developing an action plan that will address the barriers getting in the way of new ownership and rental housing.

To inform the action plan, the government is undertaking consultations on how to expand the housing supply in Ontario.
