Today, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) released, Home Stretched: Tackling Ontario’s Housing Affordability Crisis Through Innovative Solutions and Partnerships, outlining opportunities for the private, public, and non-profit sectors to explore innovative partnerships and approaches to address housing affordability and supply, and recommendations to build on successful models.


The policy brief provides all levels of government and industry with recommendations under the following themes: Labour and Demographics, the Housing Continuum, and Infrastructure and Land Use Planning.


To help inform this brief, the OCC led a series of regional housing affordability roundtables with a diverse range of housing sector stakeholders. We extend our gratitude to all roundtable participants for their valuable feedback and to the entire Ontario Chamber Network for their ongoing support and engagement.


A special thanks to our Lead Partner, Desjardins, and Presenting Partners, Cadillac Fairview, and the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario, for their support.
