The City of Toronto is moving forward on its plan to increase the supply of affordable housing across the city. As part of the HousingTO 2020-2030 Action Plan, the City committed to create 1,000 new modular homes in Toronto.

The Modular Housing Initiative is an innovative and cost-effective way to build small-scale infill housing while providing a rapid, dignified response to connect people experiencing homelessness with homes and appropriate supports to help them achieve housing stability.

Modular housing, which is essentially prefabricated housing, is built off-site in a factory and transported to the site for assembly. City Council has approved the first two phase of the project that will create 100 modular homes on City-owned sites in 2020 and an additional 150 in 2021.

Phase 1 - 2020

100 modular supportive homes created at 11 Macey Ave. and 321 Dovercourt Rd. (formerly 150 Harrison Ave.)
