How are we doing

Strategy 4.1

Provide Diverse and Affordable Housing

Affordability is a significant regional challenge, both for renters and homeowners, but locations near transit improve overall affordability. There is more housing diversity, but the need for townhouses and larger units continues to increase.

Strategy 4.2

Develop Healthy and Complete Communities

Complete communities with access to a range of services and amenities exist at different scales across the region. An appropriate measure for complete communities has not yet been developed for the region.
