The City of Hamilton's Housing & Homelessness Action Plan (PDF, 7 MB) is a 10-year, solution-focused, person-centred plan that will guide decision making on how the Hamilton community will address affordable housing and homelessness issues.
The purpose of the Housing & Homelessness Action Plan is to:

- achieve targets for housing supply, affordability, supports, quality and equity for all Hamiltonians
- identify outcomes, strategies, and actions
- require partnerships and community involvement to implement

The Action Plan was developed in partnership with a multi-stakeholder Planning Group and the Affordable Housing Flagship.
