The Ontario government has passed housing legislation that overrides some municipal zoning laws and eliminates some development fees in an effort to follow through on the province's goal of building 1.5 million homes.

The legislation—also known as Bill 23 or the "More Homes Built Faster Act"—was first proposed by the Ford government about a month ago and has since been criticized for leaving municipalities short billions of dollars.

In addition to setting housing goals for 29 large cities in Ontario, the Progressive Conservatives proposed numerous legislative changes, including allowing up to three units, as well as duplexes and triplexes, on a single residential lot without bylaw amendments or municipal permissions.
