On National Housing Day, Help Mississauga Increase Housing Choices – Take Our Survey!

City building | November 22, 2021

November 22 is National Housing Day, a day that recognizes the important work by housing partners across Canada to improve access to housing for all.

Housing affordability is a major issue in Mississauga and the wider GTA. Protecting the existing affordable housing supply and encouraging new affordable rental and ownership housing are priorities for the City.

The City’s Housing Strategy: Making Room for the Middle offers many approaches to improving housing affordability in Mississauga. A key focus is to look at how to increase housing choices in neighbourhoods to improve access to housing that is affordable. That means encouraging a range and mix of housing types such as duplexes and backyard garden suites, and arrangements such as co-ownership and home sharing. These options would give Mississauga residents more housing choices in the neighbourhoods they want to live in. They would also enable residents to age in place throughout their life stages.

As we mark National Housing Day, we want your opinion on these housing options. To get as much feedback as possible, we have extended our Increasing Housing Choices in Neighbourhoods online survey to December 31, 2021.
