The City believes all Torontonians should have safe, secure, affordable and well-maintained homes where they can realize their full potential. Over the next year, we will be working with all housing stakeholders and the public to develop a comprehensive solutions-based plan to address housing and homelessness challenges over the next decade.

The public engagement process will kick off in early 2019 and we want you involved. Subscribe below to receive your invitation to participate!
