This visualization is connected to Question 5, in which you were asked to give your guess about the average time households have to wait before being granted a subsidized home in Toronto. Here we take a closer look at the Toronto Community Housing Corporation through two timelines. In the first one, a unit chart visualizes the Corporation’s housing stock. Each symbol represents 100 RGI residential units, arranged on the horizontal axis by year of construction. You can filter the data to see a breakdown for different districts, and hover on symbols to know which housing developments are represented for each single year. 

The second visualization, which you can access by clicking on the Chart Type button, shows the evolution of the total amount of subsidized units in TCHC’s stock since 1950 (area chart), while a red line represents the increase in the number of households with an active application on the Centralized Waitlist for subsidized housing, which peaked in 2018 at 100,515.
