TORONTO – Ontario’s realtors and home builders say the province could address a housing supply crunch if it allowed a greater range of developments around 200 transit hubs.

The associations which represent Ontario’s realtors and home builders are calling on the provincial government to change zoning rules around the transit stations.

They say permitting different uses of the space around and above transit hubs and lifting a regulatory burden that limits so-called “transit-oriented development” would create thousands of new homes per year.
