As part of the policy development process, the City is looking for feedback from renters, housing agencies and organizations, the development industry, housing advocates, resident associations and the general public on how inclusionary zoning should apply in Toronto. We want to ensure that the policies are:

  • predictable, clear, and consistently applied;
  • flexible, equitable and needs-based; and
  • partnership-based.

Written comments on the draft inclusionary zoning official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendment can be submitted to Christine Ono at
