WoodGreen and the Toronto Region Board of Trade have worked together on the Housing a Generation of Essential Workers report series with three goals in mind: to draw attention to the challenge of creating affordable workforce housing, identify solutions that provide housing for essential workers and encourage key partners to act on this urgent issue.

As we begin to look to a new post-pandemic reality, the third and final report in our series, The Costs of Inaction, provides a stark assessment of how a shortage of affordable workforce housing is already harming our Region’s economy and society – and will cause even greater harm in the near future, if nothing is done.
