The federal government is motivating cities to take real steps to create more new homes, including multi-family rental, with their Housing Accelerator Fund. Serious city governments are now taking steps to remove unnecessary bureaucratic barriers to homes and end exclusionary zoning. The City of Winnipeg is in the early stages of a zoning by-law review. This is part of the City's application to the Housing Accelerator Fund. Winnipeg hired Clarion Associates to conduct an initial review and assessment of the the Zoning Bylaw. On Sept. 29th, City Council accepted this as information. About YIMBY Winnipeg: YIMBY stands for “Yes In My Backyard”. We support an affordable and sustainable Winnipeg that grows up, not out.
