How do we solve Canada’s housing crisis? Our nation’s housing market is critically undersupplied. We must produce 3.5 million more housing units than are currently in the delivery pipeline by 2030 to restore housing affordability (Canada and Housing Corp., 2022). One in three Toronto homeowners and renters experience affordability issues. For every new affordable unit built in Toronto, it is estimated that 15 existing private affordable units are lost.

On June 1, 2024, Innis College’s Urban Studies Program will bring together esteemed city builders, from a range of sectors, to host a multipronged discussion and Q&A on Toronto’s housing affordability crisis. Panelists will share their top programs, policies, and professional opinions that could help move the needle on the crisis in different sectors and make living in our cities more affordable and equitable. Panelists include Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow, former Toronto Chief Planner Gregg Lintern, Stormont Partners Founder and CEO Greg Kalil, and U of T urbanist Dr. Emily Paradis.
