Event Details

Everyday we are overwhelmed by news stories and reports covering Ontario's housing affordability challenges. The reality is that we are swimming in data, and yet we are drowning in high prices, slow approvals times, unexpected construction costs and outdated regulatory barriers that threaten Ontario's economic recovery. With a data driven approach to identify problems and create innovative solutions, there are opportunities to turn the tide and bring affordability back to Ontario's housing market.
