About Shape Stratford

The Town of Stratford has received $1.1M funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to take part in the Housing Supply Challenge (HSC). As part of this, Shape Stratford has been introduced, an initiative aimed to finding innovative solutions to barriers around new housing supply.

Housing supply is a critical issue affecting our community, with an anticipated shortfall of housing to meet population growth over the next 20 years. An increase in housing supply in the homeownership and rental market is necessary to ensure everyone has access to quality and healthy housing.

Shape Stratford is about creating a community conversation required for a common understanding of the variety of housing needed, the barriers to meeting that need and solutions that can be implemented to ensure housing that is safe and affordable for residents.
