2023 Servicing Allocation Program

Halton Regional Council endorsed the 2023 Allocation Program (CA-02-24/PW-04-24/FN-05-24) (PDF file)on February 14, 2024.

The 2023 Allocation Program was designed to support Local Municipalities in meeting their Provincial housing pledges. In January 2024, the Region released a Confirmation of Interest (COI) to landowners and developers within the program area; a summary of COI submissions is now available (PDF file). Following endorsement of the 2023 Allocation Program, Local Municipalities will identify properties for participation in the program.
