Doug Ford Holds Affordable Housing Summit with Mayor of Ontario Next Month

Premier of Ontario Doug Ford invites local government leaders to a summit on affordable housing.

Meetings with Ford, Minister of State Steve Clark, mayors of metropolitan areas and regional chairs are scheduled for 16 December.

Ford says the goal of the summit is to work on solutions to address the affordable “crisis” of homes so that more families can become homeowners.

Clark will also hold a session with local governments on affordable housing in January.

The latest plans from the Progressive Conservative Government have come after the previous announcement of an affordable task force for housing that also investigates this issue.

Tim Hudak, CEO of the Ontario Real Estate Association, said the summit was a good step towards greater cooperation on this issue and called for changes to the zoning rules to enable more family-friendly housing. ..
