Session:

Panel: Making Housing Affordable In The GTA

3:30 pm
  -  
4:00 pm

Toronto has been ranked one of the least affordable cities in the world for housing. In the past 10 years, a growing population and low interest rates have caused a real estate boom in Toronto that has pushed housing prices beyond the grasp of the average income earner.

Reversing course on housing affordability will require action from many parties: government, real estate developers, banks, planners and more.

This panel will discuss what can and should be done to make Toronto a permanent home for more people. It will examine factors like housing supply, rent control, zoning, speculation as well as alternative forms of ownership.
