Guelph needs to plan to meet provincial growth forecasts for a population of 191,000 and 101,000 jobs by the year 2041. We need your input to ensure that we develop a Guelph-made approach to accommodate this future growth. You can help by letting us know where more housing should be within Guelph’s already developed area. We are also looking for your thoughts on how tall buildings should be allowed to be in different areas of Guelph. By completing this survey you will provide the City with valuable input on your preferences for accommodating future growth in our city.

    Will this be rent geared to income. We have a homeless crisis so why are we not building rent geared to income, anything else is ridiculous.

    Trish Asked 27 days ago

    This survey is part of Guelph's update to its Growth Management Strategy. The survey looks at where and how we should grow into the future from a land use perspective. Specifically, where new housing should be added and how tall buildings should be in different parts of the city.

    Guelph is an active partner in trying to address homelessness in the city. Through the Mayor's Task Force on Homelessness and Community Safety the city, with many community partners, are exploring and working towards action items identified by this task force. The work of this task force also recognizes that the County of Wellington has the responsibility for a homelessness strategy and rent-geared-to-income housing options for Guelph.

    Is there be any more Ontario housing

    Wayne Martin Asked 27 days ago

    The Province used to administer publicly owned housing through the Ontario Housing Corporation. The Province no longer provides this service. Administration of former Ontario Housing Corporation units have been transferred to municipalities. Wellington County manages these units in Guelph.

    Arguably one of the hardest parts about growing is going to be resetting some of our own social constructs about housing. How will the City help contribute to the cultural shift that needs to happen in order to accommodate sustainable growth in housing?

    cb1988 Asked 7 months ago

    Thank you for your question. Housing Guelph's growing population is one of the major considerations for Guelph through this work on establishing a new growth management strategy. Conversations about the amount of housing that is needed and the types of housing that should be provided are planned for later in 2020.
