City of Burlington launches Housing Strategy survey
Published August 11, 2021 at 7:40 pm
The City of Burlington is currently doing a Housing Strategy in order to provide current and future residents with more housing options.
The strategy, which is an opportunity to develop solutions for housing issues in Burlington, will build on and support Halton Region’s Housing Strategy.
The City is currently seeking feedback from residents to help understand their experiences with finding affordable and safe housing through an online survey, which is open from now until Sept. 3, 2021.
The information collected through the survey will be used to support statistical information, including Statistics Canada’s Census, which will help the City to identify housing issues and needs of Burlington residents in order to support the development of a Housing Strategy.
In March 2021, the first Housing Strategy survey was released as part of the Housing Strategy Launch.
This initial survey collected information about housing concerns in Burlington and asked for feedback on how stakeholders would like to be engaged throughout the Housing Strategy Project.
“Affordable housing is one of the biggest crises of our time. That’s partly because affordability is no longer linked to income, and supply is taken up by investments. Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. We will do our part in Burlington using the tools we have,” said Mayor Marianne Meed Ward.
“Our local Housing Strategy carves out the City’s role to ensure we do our part to the fullest. Our strategy will also identify partners and stakeholders critical to success, ensuring we don’t leave a single stone unturned in helping our current and future residents make one of the most important decisions of their lives and that’s finding a place to live.”
