VAUGHAN, June 14, 2018 /CNW/ - Housing is a key issue in the GTA and the City of Vaughan. Providing housing for the next generation is a challenge that needs to be solved in a partnership between residents, the building industry and municipal governments across the GTA.
The Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) will kick-off its 2018 Build for Growth Campaign and will put forward some ideas to improve the housing supply problem and affordability of new homes by working with investment-ready cities like Vaughan to ensure that the right infrastructure is in place, modernize outdated bylaws, cut red tape and ensure that shovel ready land is in place.
The City of Vaughan is a clear example of an investment-ready city. Investment-ready cities like Vaughan are designated areas where municipal leaders, the building industry, retailers and small business owners work together to create complete "live, work and play" communities.
BILD wants other municipalities to be investment-ready like the City of Vaughan.

Where: Vaughan City Hall – Main Floor
