Peel Housing and Homelessness Plan
The Peel Housing and Homelessness Plan (2018-2028) sets the renewed direction for the work of the Region and its partners.
Together, we’re working to achieve two outcomes:
- Make affordable housing available to all Peel residents, and,
- Prevent homelessness in Peel.
We conducted an extensive needs assessment to understand the challenges Peel residents face in obtaining affordable housing.
We identified that 2,000 new units of affordable housing are needed annually to address current and future needs of low-income and middle-income households.
To support the development of new affordable housing and maintain existing units, we have developed strategies to transform how we work.
Achieving our outcomes will require policy and funding support from the provincial and federal governments. The participation of landlords, non-profit housing providers, private sector developers, residents and community organizations will also be critical.
Our five strategies describe how we will work with all our partners to achieve our outcomes:
- Transform Service
Prevent homelessness and match people with the right services.
- Build More Affordable Housing
Increase capacity for affordable housing development and reduce the cost of development.
- Provide Incentives to Build Affordable Housing
Encourage development of affordable rental and home ownership through a targeted program of tools and incentives.
- Optimize Existing Stock
Maintain existing social and affordable stock and leverage existing private stock to create more and different types of affordable housing.
- Increase Supportive Housing
Expand the supply of supportive housing and provide supports to existing tenants.
