The Regional Planning Commissioners of Ontario (RPCO) represents the planning directors, commissioners and other senior planning officials of municipal governments across Ontario.
Its current membership includes the Cities of Chatham-Kent, Guelph, Greater Sudbury, Hamilton, Kingston, London, Ottawa, Thunder Bay and Windsor; the Regional Municipalities of Durham, Halton, Niagara, Peel, Waterloo, and York; Counties of Simcoe and Haldimand; and the District Municipality of Muskoka.
The RPCO through letters to the Province and position papers has repeatedly made clear its support for inclusionary housing.
The most recent correspondence, a letter from the Chair of the RPCO to the Acting Assistant Deputy Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on 12 April 2010, opened with this statement:
“I am writing to again express our support for the development of explicit policies and legislation to enable municipalities to require the provision of inclusionary housing.”
