Statement from Tim Hudak on the Government's Proposed Planning Act Changes to Reduce Red Tape

“Today, Ontario Realtors are pleased to see the Doug Ford government taking an important first step to improve and streamline our province’s land use planning approvals process, a move that will bring homes to market faster.

Currently, it can take up to a decade to go through the government approvals process. Unnecessary red tape and delays stall housing construction, meaning there are less homes available than there are people who want them, which in turn, is driving up prices. As part of our 5-point plan to increase housing supply, OREA has advocated for the reduction of red tape and government regulations.

As a key advisor on the Government’s Housing Supply Action Plan, OREA continues to offer solutions towards making home ownership more affordable for Ontario families, like speeding up approval times, intensifying along transportation corridors and building more missing middle housing.

With better alignment of municipal and provincial housing priorities, we can get new homes to the market quickly in exactly the places where we need them.”

- Tim Hudak, CEO for the Ontario Real Estate Association
