Options for new affordable housing in Parkdale
Please join us for a Panel Discussion on the options for creating new affordable housing in Parkdale.
Toronto is experiencing a housing affordability crisis. Rents are skyrocketing, pricing low and middle income people our of their communities, while home-ownership is increasingly unattainable for the majority of Torontonians.

Panelists will provide an introduction to the opportunities and challenges of some of these options including: Cooperative Housing, Affordable Home Ownership, inclusionary zoning, non-profit rental housing and Community Land Trusts.
