Affordable housing measuring and monitoring

One of the key actions included in Housing Solutions: A place for everyone is to work with local municipalities and the development industry to establish implementation guidelines for the Regional Official Plan. These guidelines require 25 per cent of new housing units across York Region to be affordable and 35 per cent of new housing units in Regional centres and key development areas to be targeted as affordable.

The York Region Affordable Housing Measuring and Monitoring Guidelines outline a standardized approach for an annual and consistent identification and measurement of the supply of new affordable units. The 2014 affordable housing monitoring exercise is available for reference. Going forward, the affordable housing monitoring exercises will be embedded in Housing Plan Progress Reports.
