The City of Ottawa recently completed its 10 Year Housing and Homelessness Plan 2020-2030. One of the key recommendations from this plan is to identify and develop incentives for use by the not-for-profit and private sector for the delivery of affordable housing. The Affordable Housing Community Improvement Plan (CIP) is intended to be an implementation tool to establish effective incentives for affordable rental units.

The study area for the CIP is city-wide and a full range of potential incentives and programs were evaluated, including:

  • fee, charge, and permit reductions or exemptions;
  • tax increment equivalent grants and deferrals; and
  • grants and loans for specific initiatives.
