Councillor Bailão forms private-sector housing roundtable
Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18 Davenport), Chair of the Affordable Housing Committee, has convened a roundtable of private-sector experts to promote prosperity in the City of Toronto through partnerships, innovation and the creation of housing opportunities during a period of limited government funding.

“The City of Toronto is committed to working with its partners to respond to the significant housing needs of our residents," said Councillor Bailão. "I'm very pleased that this group has come together as a result of the recent Symposium on Poverty, Housing and Homelessness to provide advice and suggestions that will encourage the creation of more affordable homes."

Roundtable members include representatives from Building, Industry and Land Development, the Central Ontario Building Trades, Toronto Board of Trade, United Way of Toronto and the GTA Association, among others.

The Roundtable will meet regularly with Councillor Bailão and officials from the City of Toronto to discuss new opportunities and cost-effective solutions to meet the housing needs of Toronto residents. It will report and make recommendations to the Affordable Housing Committee later this year.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
