On Monday, January 22 Member of Parliament Adam van Koeverden, alongside Mayor Gordon Krantz formally announced Milton is receiving $22.4 million from the Federal government Housing Accelerator Fund which is a crucial step in addressing Milton’s growing housing needs. Over the next 3 years, this funding will support the development of 800+ affordable homes, with 4600+ affordable homes planned over the next decade.
It’s all about AFFORDABILITY. Building homes people can afford, where they want to live. Close to work, education and transit – communities that are intentional, inclusive and sustainable.

As the epicenter of growth in Ontario, Milton faces unprecedented housing demand. Miltonians know why, it is such an attractive place to live! Our proximity to Toronto and pristine nature, great schools and parks, Canada’s lowest crime rate and top 5 quality of life ratings are all reasons for people to want to live in Milton. is funding arrives at a pivotal moment, and the challenges facing towns and cities across Canada are diverse, so the funding is agile and tailored to address the unique housing landscape of Milton.

This funding is building connections – because it’s not just about homes; it’s about people and a stronger, thriving community. MP van Koeverden says that he’s been working hard on affordable housing for Miltonians and he’s going to continue fighting to build homes that people can afford.

At the announcement representatives from Canada’s Co-op Housing Federation were in attendance showing a strong support for this opportunity for Milton, and the non-profits sector was well represented by important community members from Milton Transitional Housing, the Milton Community Resource Centre, Habitat for Humanity, Hum-We and e Women’s Centre of Halton. “Thank you to Adam and team for this incredible opportunity provided to the Town of Milton. We are committed to ensuring a minimum of 800 units are developed, we are very excited about this. Affordability is really key moving forward and one of our initiatives is to work with the non-profits and Halton region and look at ways that we can bring more attainable and affordable housing online for our residents and future residents.” added Jill Hogan, Commissioner of Development Services at the Town of Milton.

This was a historic announcement, a result of months of hard work and persistence from MP van Koeverden’s  office, the Town of Milton, and the Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities Sean Fraser’s team in Ottawa.
