Student Housing Review

In June 2019 staff brought forward a report to Planning Committee highlighting the current enforcement measures in place to deal with student housing. The item was referred back to staff for further review and to report back to Planning Committee to work with education institutions, developers and other interested parties to address affordable housing and other student housing needs.​

Staff have been engaging in discussions with the post-secondary institutions over the past year to foster a relationship and gain insight on the various challenges being faced by each institution. We are moving forward with establishing an informal/advisory committee (Q2 2021) with participation from post-secondary institutions and community stakeholders to identify, prioritize specific issues and concerns (i.e. student housing & landlord relations, health & safety), and make recommendations that may influence policy development and resource allocation.​
