Municipalities to receive funding for rental housing

TORONTO — As part of the Development Charges Rebate Program, the provincial government is providing 13 municipalities across Ontario with $125 million over the next five years.

Municipalities will use these funds to encourage developers to build more rental housing, states a release issued by the Ministry of Housing.

The municipalities receiving funding include: Toronto ($60 million), Ottawa ($18.25 million), Mississauga ($13.35 million), Hamilton ($6.85 million), Kitchener ($5.25 million), Brampton ($5 million), Kingston ($3.56 million), Markham ($2.85 million), St. Catharines ($2.84 million), Richmond Hill ($2.25 million), Peterborough ($1.97 million), Barrie ($1.51 million) and Greater Sudbury ($1.18 million).
