     Consultation Invitation

    Dear Community Partner,

    The Regional Municipality of York is undertaking community consultations in support of homelessness operational system reforms and to inform the development of the 10 Year Housing and Homelessness Plan.

    As a first step in these consultations, York Region is looking for input in developing a Housing and Homelessness Community Asset Map. Please help us in this endeavour by clicking on the following link and telling us a bit about your organization. The survey is quite short and should take no longer than 5 minutes.
