Housing is a top priority in the City of Burlington. The City is doing a Housing Strategy to give current and future residents more housing options across our city. In January 2021, City Council endorsed the Burlington Housing Strategy Terms of Reference, directing staff to start work on the Housing Strategy.

The Housing Strategy is an opportunity to develop creative and innovative solutions for housing issues in Burlington that will build on and support the Region’s Housing Strategy.

  • Housing Strategy Update - August 2021

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Housing is a top priority in the City of Burlington. The City is doing a Housing Strategy to provide current and future residents with more housing options across our city. The Housing Strategy is an opportunity to develop creative and innovative solutions for housing issues in Burlington that will build on and support the Region’s Housing Strategy.

    The City is looking for resident feedback to help understand your experience finding a suitable, affordable, safe and accessible housing in Burlington through an online survey here. The survey is open now until Sept. 3, 2021.

    The purpose of this survey is to collect information about your experiences with housing in Burlington. The survey provides an opportunity to share your experiences, challenges and ideas to enhance understanding of housing in Burlington.

    The information collected by this survey will be used to support statistical information, like the Statistics Canada’s Census, to help the City to identify housing issues, gaps and the housing needs of Burlington residents to support the development of a Housing Strategy.

    This is the second survey in the Housing Strategy project. In March 2021, as part of the Housing Strategy Launch, the first Housing Strategy survey was released. This initial survey collected information about housing concerns in Burlington and sought feedback on how stakeholders would like to be engaged throughout the Housing Strategy Project.

    The feedback from the first Housing Strategy survey helped us understand people’s interest in housing issues in Burlington. This feedback is summarized in the Housing Survey Launch Feedback Report presented to Council in April 2021. This information was used to inform the Housing Strategy project’s Engagement Plan.
