Making Mid-rise Work in Ontario

Workshops and a provincial symposium brought the public and private sector together to explore how to advance mid-rise development in Ontario.

In 2009, in collaboration with the Canadian Urban Institute and the CMHC, the Dept managed a research project, developed a discussion paper and designed workshops and a symposium on how to overcome the barriers to mid-rise development. The events were attended by public and private sector stakeholders from across the province of Ontario.


The discussion paper entitled “Breaking barriers, building confidence: Making Mid-rise Work in Ontario” is available on the Canadian Urban Institute’s website.
