Unlocking Housing Solutions in the GTA

In Progress / Coming Soon

Economically viable solutions the private sector can contribute to solving affordability

Summary

Currently there is much discussion about the GTA housing affordability crisis. It is important that the three levels of government are fully engaged and talking to each other. But a sometimes-neglected critical dimension is what ideas the private sector can contribute. The market is constantly adapting to evolving needs with creative and economically-viable solutions.

Whereas the government interventions may take the form of policy “sticks” to cool speculation, this project intends to explore a variety of potentials including regulatory innovations and “carrots” to augment delivery of a greater range of housing options in our built-up areas.

This CBI-supported report is being undertaken by Steven Webber of Ryerson’s School of Regional and Urban Planning.
