Social Development Centre WR: Bill 23 - Impact on Municipal and Regional Affordable Housing

"The concerns about Bill 23, the "More Homes Built Faster Act” continue to grow. Municipalities across Ontario have expressed deep reservations about its impact, especially right after the elections. Social Development Centre and other organizations in the province identified a range of concerns regarding measures that will actually prevent creation of the affordable housing we need. The Bill will: cut funding to municipal affordable housing programs (read more), reduce the amount of affordable housing new developments have to provide through inclusionary zoning, undermine programs that protect existing affordable housing and tenants rights, shift taxes from developers to ordinary households and municipal revenues. Read the letter to the Ontario Government that many organizations in Ontario are signing to ask the province to address these concerns. Please take a moment to sign the letter on behalf of your organization, and pass this along to your networks. Affordable housing is too important and we can't afford to get it wrong."
