Building Partner Fact Sheet (PDF, 143KB)

The Region of Peel supports having a housing system with a range of housing options to provide residents with adequate affordable housing and support services.

Through the Peel community Housing and Homelessness Plan our goal is to have housing available at affordable rent levels to homeless and at risk individuals and families in our community.

This can only be accomplished through strong partnerships between all levels of government, the private sector, non-profit and co-operative housing providers and the community. Through these partnerships, our residents can benefit from the assets and expertise of all our partners.

The Region of Peel is looking for partners who can bring new and innovative thinking to help create affordable housing options in Peel. Non-profit organizations, existing housing providers and the private sector all have a part to play in helping increase the amount of affordable housing options available for the residents of Peel.

Together we can build healthy, sustainable and inclusive neighbourhoods.
