Affordable Housing Strategy

The City of Greater Sudbury is committed to promoting an appropriate range of housing types and densities, including affordable housing, to maintain and enhance a healthy and complete community.

We are working on an affordable housing strategy targeted towards seniors and those who have low incomes in order to address gaps and support population health through affordable housing options.

The affordable housing strategy will focus on:

  • innovative affordable housing options
  • removal of barriers to the housing development process
  • development incentives
  • using surplus municipal property to increase affordable housing options
