Mississauga gets $113M in funding from feds for housing

The federal government has confirmed funding of nearly $113 million for the City of Mississauga to fast-track the construction of over 3,000 housing units. The funding comes from the Housing Accelerator Fund, which aims to incentivize municipalities to update their zoning and permit systems. Mississauga will use the funding to support affordable housing, accelerate approval processes, review land for increased density, and expand permissions for "missing middle" housing. Ontario Premier Doug Ford has criticized the federal government for bypassing provincial jurisdiction.
