Housing affordability is an important issue in Canadian cities. And so is finding money to pay for much needed infrastructure. Municipalities often frame development charges (DCs) as a painless way of paying for new infrastructure without increasing taxes. Join our Vice President, Research, Daniel Schwanen, as he discusses Hosing Homebuyers: Why Cities Should Not Pay for Water & Wasterwater Infrastructure with Development Charges and the argument for why cities should revamp development charges to improve housing affordability across the country.

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
