Housing & Shelter
Housing is a basic human need and a major component of the Canadian economy. Investments in housing facilitate employment growth and job creation with increased business opportunities in a community. The composition of housing choices in a community needs to address both the current needs and the future needs of its population. The housing stock in the Brantford•Brant CMA is distributed as follows:
- Single-Detached Houses 67.2%
- Semi-Detached Houses 5.7%
- Row Houses 6.9%
- Apartment Duplex 3.2%
- Apartments < 5 Stories 8.7%
- Apartment > 5 Stories 7.9%
- Other Dwellings 0.4%
Well-designed and maintained housing helps to support a sense of community just as run-down housing will tend to erode it. The planning, layout, design and composition of neighbourhood housing makes a valuable contribution that attracts a variety of employers and employees to build and sustain a dynamic and expanding economic base in a community.
