The City strives to be a place where individuals from all walks of life and at different stages of life can call home. To make this possible, a variety of housing types and tenures are needed. Using the concept of a housing continuum as shown below, the City ensures different housing options, ranging from emergency shelters to ownership properties, are available to residents. 

Citywide Housing Policy

The City has a wide range of policies and guidelines to help support the diverse housing needs of our community. Learn more:
