Dwelling rooms are typically the most affordable option available in the private rental market and are an important part of the affordable housing stock. Dwelling rooms are individual rooms for rent found in rooming houses. A rooming house is a house or building that provides separate and private living accommodation in dwelling rooms and has shared areas such as a kitchen and/or bathroom. Dwelling rooms may include cooking facilities (e.g. a hot plate or kitchenette) or bathrooms, but not both.

This planning study is meant to address the loss of dwelling rooms across the city by creating new policies related to require replacement as rental housing and provide assistance to displaced tenants.
