Consumers Council of Canada invited 12 individuals representing the housing industry, skilled experts, and consumers, to join a panel to examine the impact of residential intensification. Panel members looked at where we have been and the shape of things to come. Following a consensus process, they made 24 recommendations which taken together suggest that in the future consumers have to be better informed about condominium purchases and high-density living; planning policies must reflect the rapid shift to intensification; a higher demand will be placed on the performance of new and existing buildings; and the need for affordable housing can only grow.
