Rental Housing in Canadian Cities: Barriers and Solutions
|We are conducting a follow-up survey in our study of Rental Housing in Canadian Cities. Our initial survey was conducted in 2018, and helped us gather the perspectives of municipal planners, non-profit housing staff, and developers who are involved in the planning and implementation of rental housing. We used those results to develop a set of critical success factors in rental housing protection and implementation. If you have not already seen them, you can see the results from Phases I and II of the study here: www.renthomas.ca/research/rental-housing-in-canadian-cities/|
We also used the results to hold policy workshops in Halifax and Ottawa with housing professionals. Now we'd like to reach out to professionals in our 15 case study cities to ask them to evaluate their city based on the 11 critical success factors we identified in Phase II of the study. This "city ranking" will help us understand the strengths and weaknesses in your rental housing approaches. For the purposes of this study, "policies" can mean housing strategies, by-laws, plans, and funding programs. "Rental housing" encompasses subsidized, below-market, and market-rate housing types.
We aim to understand the effectiveness of municipal, provincial, and federal policies and programs directly from people working in housing provision. We appreciate your insights and your time. If there is anything beyond what we've asked here that would like to add, a section is provided at the end for additional comments.
