  • May 28, 2019 – Inclusionary Zoning Official Plan Policy Directions
    • On May 28, 2019, the Planning and Housing Committee endorsed proposed inclusionary zoning policy directions as the basis for public consultation. The Committee also directed staff to hold open houses and meet with key stakeholders to obtain comments and feedback on the proposed policy directions contained in Attachment 1.

Background Reports

The Province of Ontario requires that an Assessment Report be prepared prior to adopting policies for inclusionary zoning. The City’s draft Assessment Report has been prepared and is made up of two main components:

  • Housing Need and Demand Analysis
    • The City conducted research on key housing indicators from two previous census periods, 2006 and 2016, to identify trends over roughly the past 10 years. This document contains an analysis of demographics, income, housing supply and demand, market rents and prices, and strong markets in Toronto.
  • Financial Impact Analysis
    • The City retained N. Barry Lyon Consultants Limited (NBLC) to analyze the financial impacts of a range of inclusionary zoning requirements on the housing market. A residual land value assessment was conducted for 11 geographies across the city.

A final Assessment Report will be considered by Council following public and stakeholder consultations on the proposed policy directions.
