Realizing Housing Potential

Realizing Housing Potential is a City initiative to engage residents and stakeholders in identifying actions that will improve local housing conditions and build on existing community strengths in the inner city.

This initiative concentrates on five neighbourhoods:

  • Alberta Avenue
  • Central McDougall
  • Eastwood
  • McCauley
  • Queen Mary Park

Project Update

Thank you to stakeholders who provided input on potential exemptions to the non-market housing investment pause. The public engagement period for this report has now closed. The report will be going forward to Executive Committee on March 22, 2016.

For background information on this initiative, see the Investment Pause Backgrounder and the Affordable Housing Backgrounder.

About Realizing Housing Potential

Realizing Housing Potential was completed between January 2014 and September 2015. The purpose of the project was to enable residents, stakeholders and City administration to work together to identify housing policies, programs and site-specific projects with strong potential for improving housing conditions in the five neighbourhoods.

Public engagement was an important component of this project. Our public engagement page outlines how local residents, community groups, organizations and other stakeholders contributed to the initiative. 

The final Realizing Housing Potential report and Neighbourhood Housing Roadmaps provides direction for future City housing investment in Alberta Avenue, Central McDougall, Eastwood, McCauley and Queen Mary Park.

Project Process

The Realizing Housing Potential activities included:

  • A City-led analysis of housing trends and conditions in the five neighbourhoods
  • Neighbourhood meetings, surveys, small group interviews and workshops to engage with a broad range of community stakeholders in a variety of ways
  • The development of neighbourhood-specific housing roadmaps—documents that articulate housing actions for each of the five neighbourhoods
