If you want cheap housing, you need to look in areas that others do not want. The key is to recognize areas that are unpopular now, but there are circumstances that are changing that will make the area more popular in the future.

For example, the Zug Island steel plant across the river south of Windsor recently announced closure. That is not the only stinky industry in that area, but it had the biggest impact on neighborhoods on the south side of Windsor. Without the industrial smell drifting across the river, more people may be willing to live there, especially if housing prices are affordable.

Detroit is one of the most interesting cities in the world.

I have heard many people say they enjoy living in Windsor, in part because of easy access to Detroit.

Yeah, those two I posted today are not the solution to OP, but they go to show that alternative and legal options do exist even in the heart of Toronto. These laneway houses are very interesting. If I can find this via internet, I imagine what else you could find with feet on the ground.
