|We are the land development and homebuilding industry, so why don't we just launch more projects and build more homes? Unfortunately there are many barriers, most of which government could help resolve. Some of the solutions, such as fixing the approvals process by reducing excessive red tape and modernizing local zoning bylaws so that they align with provincial intensification policy, could be achieved without additional costs.
The time has come to acknowledge that we have a housing problem in the GTA. It is time for government to recognize that we can all work together on solutions giving home buyers – now and in future – places to live and access to homes they can afford.
