DSO Housing Affordability Strategy

The purpose of the Housing Affordability Strategy 2024 work is to identify actions like policy changes, tools and incentives, advocacy, and partnership approaches to address private-market housing gaps in the short, medium, and long term. While we need to focus on private-marking housing gaps since this is where the City has the most influence, we will be taking a highly collaborative approach to this work so that we can support unlocking private and non-market housing opportunities.

For more information, read the Housing Affordability Strategy - Project Initiation.


If you are someone who builds, owns, rents out or is interested in an Additional Residential Dwelling Unit, we want your feedback! Your answers will help us understand if current rules for additional residential dwelling units are working or need to change. To fill out the Additional Residential Dwelling Unit Survey, please click here.

Please join us for an upcoming in-person event to discuss draft actions, priorities, and to have open conversations with each other about addressing housing affordability in Guelph, based on tools that the City can use. This drop in event is open to the public and registration is not necessary.
