Toronto Receives $60 million in Provincial Funding to Build More Rental Housing

I joined Ontario Minister of Housing Peter Milczyn and Mayor John Tory for the announcement that the City of Toronto will be receiving $60 million to help encourage the construction of rental housing to create complete communities that are accessible, livable, walkable, and close to transit and other services. 

As part of the announcement, the Province also announced the winning proponents of two projects that will transform surplus Provincial land into rental housing for approximately 2,150 families at the West Don Lands and downtown near Bay and College. 30 per cent of these units are being dedicated towards affordable housing. 

These two initiatives will help supplement the City's Open Door Program as we scale up our efforts to create more affordable housing opportunities in Toronto.
