  • Baby Needs a New Home

A recently released report by Dr. Mike Moffatt, Senior Director of Policy and Innovation at the Smart Prosperity Institute, identifies and shows that Ontario will need to build one MILLION new homes over the next ten years in order to meet increasing population growth and family formations that are happening in communities across our province. The new report titled, Baby Needs a New Home explores population and demographic trends across Ontario, specifically looking at the increased demand from young families that have started to, or would like to start a family, but their housing needs have not been met or are out of reach. Failure to build enough housing in our cities and communities will increase the number of young families driving until they qualify in search of affordable, attainable and sustainable housing across the province. Members are encouraged to read the full report and share it widely. To download the full PDF document, click here.
