About Housing Now

A new City Initiative

Creating mixed-income communities on public land

The Housing Now initiative is investing City-owned lands across Toronto to build affordable housing and mixed-income, livable communities near transit.

Housing Now will create a mix of affordable rental, market rental and ownership housing options to serve Toronto residents. The new affordable rental homes will remain affordable for 99 years, providing quality affordable housing for future generations. The affordable homes will be affordable for households earning between approximately $21,000 and $52,000 per year.

Housing Now is one component within the City of Toronto’s emerging HousingTO 2020-2030 Action Plan to address the full spectrum of housing issues in Toronto.

On December 13, 2018, City Council approved the activation of the 11 sites identified in a report from Mayor John Tory for the development of affordable housing as part of creating mixed-income, mixed-use and transit oriented communities.

The City Manager’s January 11, 2019 report to the Executive Committee provides an overview of the Housing Now Initiative and includes a series of recommendations for implementing the program.

The City of Toronto is working with all housing stakeholders and the public to develop a comprehensive solutions-based plan to address housing and homelessness challenges over the next decade. For more about this process, see the link below.

Toronto City Council approved the Open Door Affordable Housing Program in 2016 to accelerate affordable housing construction by providing City financial contributions, fast-tracking planning approvals, and activating surplus public land.
