Affordable Housing and Homelessness

A safe and welcoming community has space for everyone. Supporting the needs of all Ward residents builds a meaningful life and healthy communities. What should we do?

A:
  • Create development and zoning incentives for affordable housing options, including the missing middle 
  • Modify housing and homeless-serving systems for greater diversity and cultural appropriateness 
  • Ensure respect, dignity, and connection comes first in the City’s responses to homelessness
  • Work with other levels of governments and across sectors
  • Focus on breakdown prevention, housing first and rapid re-housing
  • Get serious about tackling poverty, food insecurity, mental health issues, and addictions
