Family Friendly Housing
The Family-Friendly Housing project is a City of Hamilton initiative that is looking at ways to provide and encourage an adequate supply of housing that is suitable for larger households and families with children. Having enough supply of suitable housing available, as well as designing developments and neighbourhoods in ways that are supportive of families, are key factors in ensuring that housing meets the needs of all citizens.
The term ‘family-friendly housing’ in this context refers to housing that meets the needs of households with children (i.e. parent/guardian or multi-generational family with at least one child).
