Webinar: Balancing Farmland Protection & Housing Supply

The increasing demand for housing supply and affordability in Ontario is leading to pressure on municipalities to develop their shrinking agricultural land base. At the same time, the need to preserve these food-producing landscapes is becoming increasingly critical in the face of climate change.  This session explores the challenges and opportunities faced in balancing the need for housing with farmland protection while contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies for municipalities. 

Webinar attendees will learn about the current policies and practices in Ontario and other jurisdictions that have been successful in protecting farmland. By the end of the session, participants will have a deeper understanding of the complex issues at play, leaving with practical and innovative strategies for balancing these competing demands and ways to get involved in locally. 

Tuesday, October 31st: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm 

The webinar will be recorded and distributed afterwards to all registrants. This webinar series will run from October to April. Stay tuned for more dates and topics coming soon!
