Based on City Council directives, Phase 1 of Concept 2 Keys (C2K) is focusing on affordable housing development applications identified as priorities by the City’s Housing Secretariat. Phase 1 includes some Long-Term Care applications as well.
In collaboration with the Housing Secretariat, priority affordable housing projects were identified as suitable candidates to participate in Phase 1 based on a rigorous set of criteria. The criteria, developed by the Housing Secretariat, are aimed at accelerating the supply of affordable housing units in Toronto. Participation in the C2K Program will advance the application process in a number of ways, including fast-tracking internal and external timelines and establishing new escalation processes and procedures.
As Phase 1 progresses, Modular Housing Initiatives and Rapid Housing Initiatives will be incorporated. The C2K team will also work with the City’s Housing Secretariat to identify and incorporate city-wide priority affordable housing projects approved through the 2020 Open Door Program.
To help meet the targets of the City’s HousingTO 2020-2030 Action Plan and help the City deliver much-needed affordable housing faster, applications for C2K are prioritized based on affordability criteria adopted by City Council.
You will find more information on application eligibility in the City’s report on the Concept 2 Keys Development Review Operational Pilot.
Once your project information is reviewed, the City will let you know whether your project has been selected for inclusion in the C2K program.
These are the development applications that are currently part of Phase 1 of C2K. New applications will be added based on capacity and whether they meet eligibility requirements.
