About Our Strategy


​Approved by Simcoe County Council in January 2014, Our Community 10-Year Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy outlines​​ steps for the development and implementation of creative solutions for increasing affordable housing for all residents in Simcoe County. To achieve a range of affordable housing options and ensure greater access to affordable housing for County residents, the County has committed to a minimum target of 2,685 new affordable housing units throughout the region​ by 2024.​

The 10-Year Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy outlines the strategic opportunities and priority activities to be implemented by the County of Simcoe and its municipal partners between Janu­ary 1, 2014 and January 1, 2024.

The ​successful implementation of this Strategy will ensure that housing and support needs of County residents are met and that communities in the County are poised to socially and economically succeed in the future.


​Adequate, appropriate and affordable housing for all Simcoe County residents.​

  • Collaboration amongst levels of government, community partners and systems, recognizing that the need for safe, affordable, healthy housing connects all of our mandates as we strive for people-centered solutions.
  • Support for the critical role of the private sector in the creation of housing stock.
