Bring a friend or three!
In the midst of our affordable housing and environmental crises, the Province keeps pushing detached houses on precious farmland and natural spaces.
Kevin Eby (Registered Planner, Former Director of Planning, Region of Waterloo) will discuss his recently published report and other data on land availability, and his experience building housing in downtown Kitchenener
Cherise Burda (Executive Director, City Building, Toronto Metropolitan University) will discuss the different types of housing Ontarians need and where to build it.
We'll then have a Q & A session and, time permitting, go into "Zoom breakout rooms" to discuss next steps.

The Council of Niagara Falls without seeking input from its Planning Department has recently requested a Ministerial Zoning Order, (MZO) to extend the urban boundaries of Niagara Falls west of Kalar Road, into an important wildlife corridor for the Niagara Escarpment. These lands contain a significant woodland straddling the Ten Mile Creek, which provides important amphibian breeding habitat and rare Buttonbush communities. The MZO request if approved would increase the ecological damage by an urban boundary expansion supported by the Niagara Region, east of Kalar Road, which was approved despite the opposition of the Niagara Falls Planning Department.
It is urgent that opposition to the destruction of the Escarpment wildlife corridor be expressed promptly.
Please email the Minister of Municipal Affairs Stephen Clark. Ask him to oppose the MZO request west of Kalar Road and the urban boundary expansion east of Kalar Road supported by the proposed new Niagara Regional Official Plan. Please send an email by November 1, 2022, and copy to PALS. to
