Committee Objectives

The Housing & Land Use committee committee aims to support a more strategic regional land use strategy that can protect and grow industrial employment areas while also attracting and retaining regional talent through improving the supply and affordability of housing.

Together, these members advise, guide and shape the Board’s efforts to champion: 

  • Increasing the supply of housing for low- and middle-income workers in priority sectors
  • Policy and legislative changes, structures and models needed to increase the variety of housing options that can be financed and built 
  • Attracting and retaining regional talent through encouraging the adoption of the Housing Affordability Task Force’s recommendations  

How We'll Get There

To reach our objectives, we work to: 

  • Increase the supply and variety of housing options, including mid-rise and family-sized units  
  • Slow the increase and/or reduce the average cost of homes in Toronto and the region 
  • Maintain the region as a globally competitive place to invest and immigrate
