The City is actively working to create more affordable housing. This work is guided by the HousingTO 2020-2030 Action Plan which will help create a range of housing opportunities. To help achieve this, the City aims to approve 40,000 new affordable rental homes, including 18,000 deeply affordable homes with supports, as well as 4,000 affordable ownership homes by 2030.


There are approximately 9,900 people experiencing homelessness in Toronto. New affordable and supportive housing is urgently needed to ensure everyone has a warm, safe place to call home. The City, in partnership with federal and provincial governments, is increasing the supply of supportive homes. These housing projects aim to provide a rapid, dignified response to connect people experiencing homelessness with affordable homes and support services. To provide this rapid response, the City uses either innovative modular construction on City-owned land or acquires existing buildings (such as hotels or motels) that need renovations.
