Regional Council has identified the need to increase affordable housing options in Peel.

These actions include:

In 2018, the Region completed the Peel Housing Needs Assessment through a collaborative approach. As a result of the Needs Assessment, the 2018 Housing and Homelessness Plan (PHHP) (PDF) and the 2018 Housing Strategy (PDF) were developed.

The Housing Strategy outlines strategies and planning tools available to the Region to increase the supply of affordable housing in Peel. The strategy will be used to create and implement policies, programs and initiatives.

Peel Affordable Rental Incentives Program

The need for low and moderate-income affordable rental housing was identified through the PHHP, Housing Needs Assessment and local municipal housing strategies. As a part of the PHHP and in alignment with Regional policies, the Region of Peel developed an Affordable Housing Incentives Pilot Program focused on addressing moderate-income needs. After a successful pilot, on July 7, 2022, Regional Council approved the annual Peel Affordable Rental Incentives Program and offered up to $10 million in funding through a 2023 Call for Applications.
