Housing and Community Development

Housing is essentially the built environment, but a safe, welcoming and affordable place to call home is vitally important to a personís overall well-being. Research has linked safe, affordable and healthy housing to reduced illness and a reduction in long-term health-care Housing is a key factor which influences community development. Municipalities must recognize this as a complex issue requiring a coordinated approach among multiple sectors and multiple levels of government. In relation, community development is a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. Community wellbeing consistently (environmental, social and economic) advances with this type of approach.
