Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods

Toronto is expected to grow by 700,000 people and more than 450,000 jobs by 2051. The Official Plan sets out our long-term vision, shared values, and policies that help guide decision-making on land development, economic growth, the environment, and more.

Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods is a City of Toronto initiative to facilitate more low-rise housing in residential neighbourhoods to meet the needs of our growing city. The City is working to expand opportunities for “missing middle” housing forms in Toronto, ranging from duplexes to low-rise walk-up apartments. All of these housing types can be found in many parts of Toronto today, but they are also limited in where they can be newly built. Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods is one solution among a range of City initiatives to increase housing choice and access and create a more equitable, sustainable city.
