The Green Party of Ontario's Housing Strategy
In Ontario it is increasingly difficult for many people to find affordable housing options. This needs to change.
We have an ambitious, practical roadmap to building livable and affordable communities where everyone has a great place to live.
Our plan is based on three pillars: Connected. Affordable. Sustainable.
Greens understand that all Ontarians deserve to live in communities that are vibrant, accessible, caring and fair.
Connected: Communities to live, work & play
Greens believe in creating vibrant neighbourhoods where we can live, work and play.
It's time to stop spending hundreds of hours commuting.
Let's build 15 minute neighbourhoods:
- Where it’s easy to connect with friends and family.
- Where we can get to the places we need to go without long commutes.
- Or in other words, a great place to live.
Affordable: Homes that people can afford
In Ontario right now, housing costs are rising faster than incomes.
Everyone has a right to safe and affordable housing.
Our plan calls for:
- Building 100,000 new affordable units.
- Support for renters and pathways to home ownership.
- And reducing speculation to put homes for people first.
Sustainable: Housing That Works for People & Planet
In Ontario, buildings produce 24 percent of our climate pollution.
We can do better.
$5 billion over 10 years for a Green building program:
- create hundreds of thousands of Ontario jobs,
- save energy and money,
- and address the climate crisis by reducing emissions.
Greens Have A Plan
There’s no doubt about it. Neighbourhoods should be designed with people in mind.
Greens have a plan for people-centred neighborhoods that put health and well-being at the forefront. We want to build vibrant green neighbourhoods that are affordable, safe and secure while also protecting the places we love.
Let's Build Livable and Affordable Communities
The world Greens want is one where everyone has a place to call home. Where the colour of your skin, or your age, or the fact that you have a physical disability doesn’t prevent you from finding a safe and affordable place to live.
A world where our communities are climate-friendly and where everyone has more time to spend with family and friends, instead of being stuck in long commutes.
Greens have 9 strategies to help build that world.

Thank you for your support!
Can you chip in $3 to help us put "livable and affordable communities" on the government's agenda? Even a little would help tremendously. But if you can't, maybe you'd consider sharing instead?
