Housing and Homelessness Master Plan

City of Windsor
Project status: complete

J Consulting Group worked in partnership with Vink Consulting and the City of Windsor to review the Windsor Essex 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan.  This project involved conducting an assessment of current and future housing needs within Windsor Essex and developing goals, objectives and strategies to improve access to safe, affordable, accessible and quality housing and support services for individuals and families in Windsor Essex. It involved re-thinking and re-organizing the housing and homelessness system, to focus on housing stability, homelessness prevention and quick access to permanent housing (housing first) rather than emergency responses. The Plan also considers the housing and support needs of specific population groups, including persons with disabilities, Indigenous people, immigrants, youth, seniors, and victims of domestic violence. Approximately 1,500 residents and stakeholders provided insights and feedback into the Plan.
