The Roadmap for Redevelopment Plans to Confront Systemic Racism addresses the problem of systemic racism, displacement, and low planning outputs of affordable housing. The Roadmap addresses these problems through Inclusive Neighbourhood Planning Hubs supported by strategic planning, mentorship, and vertical integration between racialized communities experiencing displacement pressures and those with the assets, knowledge, and/or social capital to plan and develop affordable housing. This multi-sectoral and multi-displinary collaboration designs and fortifies social, tech, and policy infrastructure to increase affordable housing supply by increasing the economic inclusion of racialized people in the housing industry of planning, building, and constructing affordable housing.
This solutions recognizes the magnitude and impact of the privatization of public investments into transit. This includes landlords capitalizing on multi-billion dollar public investments by raising their rents and increasing the resale price of their properties - while generating no - little new affordable housing supply. Public policies have not been etablished to match the magnitude of property owners lowering affordable housing supply. In recognition of the severity of transit oriented displacement, the solution will operate 17 Inclusive Neighbourhood Planning Hubs across the Ontario municipalities with recent investments in local public transit (Toronto, Peel, York, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Ottawa).
In partnership with the City of Toronto Confronting Anti-Black Racism Unit, this project includes a carve out to dedicate attention to understanding and addressing barriers limiting the economic inclusion and success of Black people to plan, build, and access affordable housing.
