Survey on Housing Needs

The City of Toronto is conducting a survey to understand more about the housing needs of Toronto residents and their experiences of growth in the city's low-rise neighbourhoods.

About this survey

This survey of Toronto's registered community associations will help better inform the City on neighbourhood perspectives on housing needs and residential growth, and help us plan for well-designed communities that offer transportation choices, meet people’s needs for daily living at all stages of life, and provide convenient access to an appropriate mix of jobs, local services and community infrastructure, including affordable housing, schools, recreation and open space. As we plan for the future, it is vital that we hear from you. With your help, Toronto can build on its success and continue to be an attractive place where all residents can enjoy a good quality of life.

How to take part

Survey invitations were sent on February 26 to all community association email contacts registered with the City Clerk and additional organizational email addresses provided by Councillors. Please check your junk mail folders to make sure you are not missing this important opportunity to provide your perspectives on this topic.

If a representative of your association has not received a survey invitation and you would like to participate, please email cityplanning@toronto.ca with:

  • "neighbourhood survey" in the subject line;

  • the name of your community association; and

  • an email address that you consent to us providing to the consultant conducting this survey on the City of Toronto's behalf. This contact information will be securely stored, used for the sole purpose of this survey, and destroyed upon completion of the survey.

The survey will be open until March 17, 2020. We look forward to hearing from you.
