Eastern Ontario Regional Housing Summit

May 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Building Together: Unlocking Economic Prosperity by Accommodating Housing

The 2024 Housing Summit, presented by Enbridge Gas,  will explore how are we coordinating as a region ensure a sufficient housing supply for residents now and in the future, as well as offering the variety of housing that people want and can afford, and that fits with the lifestyle they want in their particular stage of life.

The Summit will look at population trends and housing demand in Eastern Ontario – both from people moving out of major centres in the area into the smaller surrounding rural communities, and the influx of population and subsequent housing demand into Eastern Ontario from other parts of the province. We’ll also look at both how the regional economy impacts housing demand, and conversely how housing affordability and supply in the region will affect our economy. to
