The Mayor’s Task Force on Affordable Housing was set-up by the Mayor and Municipal Councillors as a means of identifying priority short-term and longer-term objectives and implementation strategies aimed at advancing affordable housing availability and options for the residents of North Grenville.
The Task Force will examine the current state of affordable housing in the Municipality of North Grenville and make recommendations for strategies and opportunities to expand access for residents. The recommendations will include actions that may be taken by the Municipality to increase access to non-profit and subsidized housing, affordable rental housing and affordable home ownership for low and moderate income households. Recommendations will take into account the needs of residents at different stages of life and the range of housing options designed to lift individuals and families out of unaffordable or substandard housing and minimize risks for chronic homelessness. The Task Force will present an Interim Repor to Council by the end of September 2019 and a Final Report on March 10, 2020.
The Task Force is currently hearing from a number of subject-matter experts and will then begin hearing from stakeholders and individuals with lived experiences of housing challenges. Anyone in the community who would like to express their opinions and ideas or make a presentation to the group is welcome to share their thoughts by sending an email to .
