Well past the midway point of the Doug Ford government’s first term, the planning and development landscape has transformed in Ontario. Renewed public policy interest in building more transit, housing and urban intensification, including recently passed legislation and widening use of Ministerial Zoning Orders (MZO), promises to significantly reduce the development approval process in order to facilitate housing supply, affordability and mass transit.
