New Affordable Rental Units Built

Merging Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton

The Citizen Dashboard is in the process of being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton.  During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date.  The conversion is underway and is expected to be fully completed by June 2019. 

Importance


Targets have been set for new affordable housing builds as part of the City of Hamilton’s Housing and Homelessness Action Plan.

Story behind the numbers


In 2017, 102 new affordable rental units were approved. These developments all support achievement of the goals set out in the City of Hamilton’s Housing and Homelessness Action Plan.

Performance improvements


New affordable rental development is generally reliant on investment from the City of Hamilton and upper levels of government of up to $200,000 per unit. The ability to continue to build new housing units is reliant on continued funding.
