Cutting Red Tape to Build More Homes

In April the Cutting Red Tape to Build More Homes Act, 2024, was released as the latest step in our government’s commitment to getting more homes built faster, at lower costs; by cutting red tape, introducing new regulations and working with municipalities/other partners to grow a stronger economy. If passed it will:

  • Invest in housing-enabling infrastructure.
  • Support innovative construction methods.
  • Prioritize infrastructure for ready-to-go housing projects
  • Streamline approvals for student housing.
  • Eliminate the provincial sales tax from purpose-built rentals to boost rental starts.
  • Helping build vibrant, mixed-use communities
  • Make it easier to build more garden, laneway and basement suites.

The best ideas to cut red tape and make life easier come from the people who deal with it every day. Our government encourages people and businesses to share your ideas through the dedicated Red Tape Portal.
