10 Year Housing and Homelessness Plan

The City of Kawartha Lakes as Service Manager for both the City of Kawartha Lakes and the County of Haliburton is required to develop a 10 year Housing and Homelessness Plan (“The Plan”) under the Housing Services Act, 2011. The Plan will establish priorities for housing and homelessness services based on targeted consultations and research.

The Plan will enable the City to:

  • Create a long term community vision, shared goals, agreed upon priorities and strategies for a continuum of housing and homelessness services;
  • Improve access to adequate, suitable and affordable housing;
  • Coordinate and integrate housing and homelessness services to assist families and individuals;
  • Assist in determination of housing and homelessness funding including but not limited to priorities and processes
  • Prepare for future senior government funding and partnership opportunities;
  • Make recommendations on process and structure of service delivery within the Corporation and with the City’s delivery partners.

The Plan will include a three-year Action Plan, which will focus on the most immediate phase of detailed activities to affect change, maximize service improvements and funding efficiencies.
