Affordable Missing Middle

The School of Cities partners with City Building TMU on the Affordable Missing Middle initiative, which explores and advances ways to add gentle density to our residential neighbourhoods to achieve affordability and equity.

The initiative has recently published a report on their 4-part webinar series ‘How to Put Affordable in the Missing Middle’ – read the report and the audience Q&As.

Affordable Housing Challenge Project

School of Cities also supports the Affordable Housing Challenge Project (AHCP), a collective that brings together scholars from across the University of Toronto, who are researching issues related to housing affordability from different disciplinary perspectives, with the objective of working together to research, discuss and debate the causes, processes, policies and consequences of declining housing affordability.
