Ontario’s Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy

Email this page

Ontario’s Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy sets out a roadmap focused on addressing Ontario’s housing needs by:

  • Creating a flexible, community-centred approach that puts people first and offers the best path toward building healthy, strong communities; and,
  • Transforming the existing system, to allow for better use of current resources and better outcomes for those in housing need.

Updating the strategy

The government is currently updating the Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy to reflect new research and best practices. We are reviewing input we’ve received through consultations with the public, other ministries, non-profits, community groups and the private sector.

In 2015, the government established an Expert Advisory Panel on Homelessness. The Panel was asked to provide practical input on definitions and data collection methods related to homelessness, and provide advice on developing a new target related to homelessness. The Panel presented its final report to government, A Place to Call Home, which will help support a solid foundation for evidence-based housing and homelessness prevention policies, and inform the government’s Long-Term Affordable Housing Strategy update.
