Through this initiative, the City of Thunder Bay will hire an "Affordable Housing Navigator," who will work with non-profit housing developers, community organizations, advocacy groups, and developers looking to include affordable units in their projects. The Navigator provides free-of-charge guidance on how to navigate the development process (including municipal and provincial processes), where to find land, and funding opportunities.

The Navigator is responsible for providing guidance to these or similar organizations, including neighbouring First Nations and urban Indigenous organizations, who are involved with supportive housing, transitional housing and other models of housing needed to meet identified needs in Thunder Bay. The Navigator is also responsible for identifying zoning by-law and policy amendments to further create systemic change in support of affordable housing.
