Ontario’s affordable housing plan needs to be built on a foundation that includes solid targets and timelines, and co-ordinates housing and homelessness initiatives of federal, provincial and municipal governments; along with the work of non-profit and private housing and service providers. Wellesley Institute CEO Rick Blickstead and Michael Shapcott, Director of Affordable Housing and Social Innovation, meet with Ontario housing minister Jim Watson to deliver the first draft of key elements of a provincial housing plan. Minister Watson has promised that he will deliver a provincial housing plan by the end of June, 2010.
