Human Services Planning Board of York Region (HSPB-YR)

Complex problems can’t always be solved using old ways of thinking.

York Regional Council created the Human Services Planning Board to bring together leaders in human services to find new ways of improving the health and well-being of our residents.

Coming together from different sectors, members of the Board seek answers to social issues to enhance a region where all our residents can thrive.

HSPB has begun its work by looking for solutions to:

  • The lack of affordable housing
  • Help residents improve economic and social well-being

Message from the Co-chairs of the Human Services Planning Board of York Region


York Region’s 2016 to 2018 Action Plan

The Human Services Planning Board (HSPB) of York Region’s 2016 to 2018 Action Plan focuses on improving health and well-being for low and moderate income residents by addressing housing options that are affordable for everyone and fulfilling employment opportunities. It builds on the direction set in Making Ends Meet in York Region: A Road Map for 2015 to 2018.


Focus: Increasing Housing Affordability

The growing gap between household income and the high cost of living in York Region makes it difficult for individuals and families to make ends meet while spending as much as 30 to 50 per cent of income on shelter alone.

The HSPB-YR works to ease this hardship by improving housing affordability in the Region.
