Community Review of 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan

Apr 3, 2019

The City of Greater Sudbury invites public input during a review of its 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan. The Government of Ontario’s Housing Services Act, 2011, mandates the review of municipal 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plans at least once every five years to ensure that local strategies remain relevant and appropriate for the community.

Residents may provide input in two ways:

  •  Fill out an online survey at until end of day on Tuesday, April 23, 2019; or
  • Submit a survey on paper at Greater Sudbury Public Libraries/Citizen Service Centres.

The 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan for the City of Greater Sudbury was adopted on November 18, 2013. The purpose of the plan is to create an integrated system of local housing and homelessness support services by:

  • Understanding current and future housing needs;
  • Identifying gaps and challenges in providing local services and supports;
  • Developing recommendations to address those gaps and challenges, and
  • Creating a way to measure the impact of those recommendations.

Housing and Homelessness Plans are required by the Government of Ontario. The Plans address provincial policy and guide municipalities in the administration of a housing and homelessness system that is flexible and centered around the community.
