Inclusionary Zoning

The province passed the Promoting Affordable Housing Act, 2016 (Bill 7) on December 6th, that will allow municipalities to require the inclusion of affordable housing units in new residential projects. A regulation under the Planning Act will set the framework for Inclusionary Zoning. In advance of the legislation being introduced, OHBA and BILD created a Statement of Intent on Affordable Housing & Inclusionary Zoning that outlines our principles for Inclusionary Zoning. OHBA, BILD and the Niagara Home Builders' Association all made deputations to the Standing Committee on Social Policy regarding inclusionary zoning and industry support for a partnership model to ensure a sharing of costs and ultimately an approach to ensure the successful delivery of affordable housing units. Key amendments made to the legislation prior to Royal Assent include allowing Section 37 to be used subject to the provisions in the regulation and adopting an OHBA recommendation to allow "off-site" affordable units.

 

OHBA also submitted recommendations to the Ministry of Housing in August regarding the regulatory consultation and both OHBA and BILD met directly with the Minister of Housing, Hon. Chris Ballard on December 12th to discuss the regulation that will be further consulted on in 2017.

Canadian Home Builders Association Special Bulletin: Some Fixes to Recent Mortgage Insurance Rule Changes

As you are aware, on October 3rd, Finance Minister Morneau announced a tightening of rules on mortgage insurance.


CHBA is concerned that these new rules go too far, and will harm markets that are already challenged while doing little to address the ongoing supply pressures evident in stronger markets. We are also concerned that these changes will disproportionately affect first-time homebuyers working hard to achieve home ownership.


Going forward we will continue to press the government to rethink their approach and recognize the need for a more constructive approach to addressing lender and insurer risks.


In the short-term, after reviewing the changes carefully, CHBA informed the government that some details included in the October 3rd rule changes were flawed. We have been actively pushing the Department of Finance to address these flaws quickly. Specifically, some elements of the new rules were creating uncertainty for builders, and buyers, with signed deals for homes to be delivered many months or years in the future.


Late on Friday, October 14th, we were informed that a number of our recommended changes were being made, and an updated Technical Backgrounder reflecting these changes is now available on the Department of Finance website.
