Industry Report: Public Housing Concerns that Municipal Candidates Need to Listen to

Latest News


Industry Report: Public Housing Concerns that Municipal Candidates Need to Listen to

The GTA is expected to be one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in all of North America through to 2041, with approximately 115,000 new residents arriving each year. Where all of these new residents will live is one of the biggest challenges the region faces, especially given the present tight housing supply and the slow pace of new homebuilding — mired by bureaucracy and red tape.

How policy makers, urban planners, developers and existing residents address the housing supply challenge will shape lives and communities for the next generation.

In just over a month, candidates will begin to declare their intention to run in this year’s municipal election. During the approach to election day on October 22, our organization will outline some of the challenges facing housing supply in the region to help inform readers and spur discussions on this important topic.

To understand public sentiment, BILD asked visitors to the recent National Home Show to share their thoughts and opinions about housing issues in the GTA. Just over 1,000 attendees shared their thoughts and, given the housing market over the last few years, the results were telling.

Affordability remains a high priority, but surprisingly almost half the respondents were not aware of municipal taxes and fees levied on new home development that are embedded in the final price of the home. When told about these added costs, almost two-thirds of people underestimated their impact on a home’s final sale price.

We also found an expectation gap. The overwhelming preference was for larger dwellings in less-dense communities — traditional single-family homes — but because of government intensification targets, significantly less of these types of homes are being built today than even a decade ago. The result is high demand and high price for less inventory options.

Lastly, the appetite for local action was palpable. Over twothirds of respondents felt that local governments are not doing enough to encourage the building of homes that people can afford.

Less than one-quarter felt that municipalities and councillors are doing enough to plan for future housing requirements. This sentiment appeared driven by concerns shared by almost three-quarters of respondents on their (or their children’s) ability to purchase a home in the GTA. Not surprising then, over twothirds of respondents indicated they would support municipal council candidates who pledged to fix the housing supply issue as part of their election platform.

While this was not a scientific survey, it outlines concerns about housing that municipal candidates need to become engage in.

The months leading to election day provides all of us with opportunities to talk about housing’s role in shaping the GTA communities where we live, work and play.

RENO & DECOR Magazine presented “Design Intervention”

Rebecca Hay – RENO & DECOR booth designer

I thoroughly enjoyed designing RENO & DECOR’s – Design Intervention booth this year for the National Home Show.

Inspired by lakeside living, the booth was a unique “cottagey” space with shiplap walls, comfortable and classy furnishings and great colourful decor items like handcrafted cottage themed pillows. The summer’s night sky mural and charming check bedroom walls added unique touches typical of a lux Muskoka retreat.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who came in to enjoy our little cottage and talk design!


Winners of the Contests:

  • The Velux skylight and installation – Maria T of Mississauga
  • A 2 hour in-home design consultation with Rebecca Hay – Bethany L of Toronto
  • A gift card and bench from UpCountry – Sandra S of Toronto

Rebecca Hay Designs – National Home Show/RENO & DECOR Booth inspired by classic and casual lakeside living.

Rebecca Hay Designs is pleased to announce we will be providing the design creation for the upcoming Design Intervention booth #4118 at the National Home Show.

Muskoka inspired and naturally nautical, I based the RENO & DECOR booth’s decor scheme on this classic summer home aesthetic. We have incoproated walls in painted white shiplap to add textural interest while creating a relaxed cottage living atmosphere. The crisp white walls will be balanced by the soft and varied wood tones of the furniture which was all selected from our furniture sponsor this year UpCountry and added in some fun custom hand printed pillows by Cottage Cloth which emphasize the nautical theme and easy going vibe.

We created these outdoor living spaces by adding a rich night sky mural provided by Ruth Baker Design and paired it with outdoor furnishings to simulate lakeside summer living. A custom “boathouse” bar was designed to create an outdoor entertaining zone, built by Pure Kitchens and paired with sleek black stone counters from Select Granite and a luxe faucet from Watermarks. In addition to comfortable indoor/outdoor living and entertaining, we wanted to include a bedroom vignette. With a buffalo check pattern created by Peacock Living, the walls are graphic, bold and fun.

The booth showcases a glimpse into lakeside living at it’s best.

Come visit me and the team while at the National Home Show this March and get design inspired!


On Monday, March 13 @ 2pm and Friday, March 16 @ 2pm – be sure to catch Rebecca on stage along with Kate Davidson and Linda Mazur as part of RENO & DECOR’s “Designer Panel”. The panel will be discussing “Realities Of A Reno”

Regardless of the size of your project or the footprint of your space, creating  a beautiful and luxurious aesthetic in our homes can be accomplished with a well laid out plan.  Style and luxury is not determined by the size of your space, but the design.  We can garner inspiration by all that we see, but realism is always necessary when renovating, not only about the space you’re working with but also your budget.  A good design can deliver all that your heart desires while creating for you a wonderfully luxurious, relaxing and inviting home that reflects your individuality and needs for years to come.

If you’re considering an upcoming renovation, join GTA designers Linda Mazur, Rebecca Hay, Kate Davidson at the National Home Show stage, where this panel of designers will be discussing how to make the most of your upcoming home renovations without compromising on luxury, style or functionality.  They will take you through the key aspects of renovating, share their top renovation strategies as well as fave kitchen, bath and home products to consider including in your homes in 2018.  Get inspired and reno ready in 2018!

The National Home Show Continues to Meld Home and Design

Latest News


The National Home Show Continues to Meld Home and Design

by Dena Gouweloos

“Okay Google, make me some coffee.”

Imagine a morning where you didn’t have to roll out of bed, struggle to locate your slippers, shuffle to the kitchen and to painstakingly make yourself a cup of coffee just to get motivated in the morning. What if you could make a freshly-brewed pot from the comfort of your bed? Or, clean the house without having to lift a mop and getting your hands dirty? Or change the channel without a 15-minute search for the ever-elusive remote?

You can see why the concept of a hands-free, tech-filled home is appealing, but did you know it is also possible? Homes are getting “smarter,” more efficient and, above all, with small upgrades, new technology and connected appliances, homes are now reflecting our lifestyles and needs like never before.

“Tech-integrated homes are the way of the future,” says Denise Hayward, show manager for the National Home Show, presented by RE/MAX and co-located with Canada Blooms. “Connecting our living spaces through voice-activated controls and creating self-cleaning rooms are things we once thought only possible in sci-fi movies, but the reality is that it’s easier than ever a turn your space into a handsfree smart home.”

From automatic environment monitoring to voice-controlled everything, our homes have become an extension of our on-the-go lifestyles. The invention of home-automation systems like Google Home and Amazon Echo have revolutionized the way we live, with the option to integrate A.I. such as ‘Alexa’ and ‘Siri’ into everything from our kitchen appliances, thermostats, TVs, garage doors and much more. Gone are the days of coming home to a freezing cold house or forgetting your grocery list at home – press a button and the contents of your fridge are accessible at your fingertips.

“New tech adds an unprecedented level of convenience to the way we live, order food and even shop, so it seems fitting to access these tools in our homes,” adds Hayward. “Whether it’s a simple addition of a no-touch faucet to help keep hands germ-free and clean, or as complex as a new fridge with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities that sends a text when you’re low on milk, it’s incredible to see how far we’ve come and how smoothly and seamlessly these new tools can be integrated into the design of your home.”

While we’ve yet to reach a Jetsons-level of high-tech furniture and conveyor belt floorboards, it’s hard to believe that total home automation isn’t the end goal for developers. Technology and innovation companies are continuing to build and improve upon connectivity and automation in household appliances, and consumers across every market are eager to discover what’s next for their homes.

The trend isn’t going away anytime soon, either—contractors, interior designers, builders and trade shows are featuring more home tech than ever before as new connections and hands-free tools are created. You can see how integrated tech and home design come together seamlessly at the Best Buy feature at the 2018 National Home Show.
