Toronto becomes first city in Ontario with inclusionary zoning

Toronto city council has voted to move ahead on a bill requiring new developments to include affordable and mixed-income housing.

City councillor Brad Bradford said on Twitter that the city will require up to 22 percent affordability in some areas across Toronto. However, in other areas, the new developments will have fewer affordable units. Still, this is a nice win for the city, where rent has been climbing pretty high over the last few years.
