Why consultation isn't required
The purpose of this notice is to provide information on consultations regarding potential legislative changes, policy and other matters as part of the More Homes for Everyone Plan. Further details on the consultations and how to provide feedback can be found in each of the listed postings.
Ontario is the best place to live, start a business and raise a family – but we can only build on our success if all Ontarians and their families are able to find a home that’s right for them. The province’s housing policies are working to get more homes built faster, but too many Ontarians still struggle to find a home. We are introducing More Homes for Everyone, that proposes targeted policies for the immediate term that make housing fairer for hard-working Ontarians and make it faster to build the homes that families need and deserve.
Addressing the housing supply crisis is a long-term strategy that requires long-term commitment and co-ordination from all levels of government.
The Task Force report is our long-term housing roadmap. Similar to Ontario’s approach with regular Red Tape Reduction bills, the province is committed to implementing the Task Force’s recommendations with a housing supply action plan every year over four years, starting in 2022-2023, with policies and tools that support multi-generational homes and missing middle housing.
We welcome your thoughts on the following changes proposed under Bill 109, the proposed More Homes for Everyone Act, 2022, which, if passed, would help make housing fairer for hard-working Ontarians and make it faster to build the homes that families need and deserve.

The government knows there is still more to do to increase housing supply. We’re also building on our progress with a series of upcoming consultations and invite members of the public, municipal partners, and other stakeholders to share your thoughts and ideas on the following:
- the unique housing needs for rural and northern Ontario municipalities
- opportunities to increase missing middle housing and gentle density, including supports for multigenerational housing
- access to financing for not-for-profit housing developers
