In 2010, Ontario launched the Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy, Building Foundations: Building Futures. The strategy began a process of transforming Ontario’s housing system into one that is people-centred, partnership-based, locally driven, and fiscally responsible.
Our update to the Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy is bold and transformative, reflecting current realities, new research and best practices. Our goal is to support social and economic inclusion, end chronic homelessness, and meet the housing needs of all Ontarians. It is guided by an updated vision:
Every person has an affordable, suitable and adequate home to provide the foundation to secure employment, raise a family and build strong communities.
Building on the 2016 Ontario Budget investment of $178 million over three years, we are making a long-term commitment to stable funding that will continue our transformation of the housing system.
