Ontario continues to take action to tackle the province’s housing supply crisis. We have already introduced a range of measures to increase housing supply and we can see their growing and positive impact. We know it will take time for their impact to be fully felt, but we will continue to move forward with policies aimed at ensuring we reach our goal of 1.5 million homes by 2031.
In this year’s housing supply action plan the Helping Homebuyers, Protecting Tenants: Ontario's Housing Supply Action Plan April 2023, we are combining the Provincial Policy Statement and A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe into a proposed single document that will streamline Ontario’s land use planning rules and encourage more housing. We’re also introducing new legislation called Bill 97: Helping Homebuyers, Protecting Tenants Act and taking steps to make life easier for both renters and home buyers. In partnership with municipalities, we will create the homes that Ontarians need today, tomorrow and in the decades to come.
