Thank you for your participation in the launch of the Orléans Corridor Study! The evening drew unprecedented interest, with over 250 of you participating in the first step of the process. Despite some logistical difficulties, we were thrilled to hear from so many of you. Rest assured, we will get a bigger venue next time.

We are now reviewing the many comments and suggestions you left us at the event. But the dialogue is not limited to one evening! Online, we will continue to welcome your ideas on an ongoing basis with the comments and map tools on Engage.Ottawa.Ca . We would also be happy to attend any community events you may have planned.

Let’s keep the conversation going!

Planning for light rail in Orléans

Starting in 2024, Ottawa will open four new light rail transit (LRT) stations: Jeanne d’Arc, Convent Glen, Place d’Orléans and Trim.

In the years ahead, we expect new communities to grow around those stations, transforming properties along the rail corridor as taller buildings and mixed-use neighbourhoods replace parking lots and low-rise commercial areas.

In the coming months, we will need your input in our review of the Orléans LRT Corridor. We want to ensure future development results in livable, resilient, desirable neighbourhoods that support transit and provide the highest quality of life possible. Once our study is completed, it will include plans for the development of lands surrounding the four new LRT stations and provide recommended improvements to pedestrian, cycling and transit connections throughout Orléans.

This project aims to replace two existing secondary plans in the Orléans Town Centre with new policies in the City’s Official Plan, as well as corresponding zoning amendments.

Objectives of the Study

  • To replace existing secondary plans with area-specific Official policies or a secondary plan, Transit Oriented Development plans and zoning
  • To identify improvements that enhance pedestrian and cycling connectivity to LRT stations
  • To provide greater clarity for the community, developers and City staff in reviewing future redevelopment proposals for the areas surrounding Stage 2 stations.
  • To outline alternatives for the future use of interchanges with the advent of LRT
  • To provide recommendations for north-south connectivity with Stage 2 stations

This planning study will not influence the alignment of the LRT or the location of stations.

Orléans Corridor Secondary Plan

4 months

Stage 2 of the LRT system will build on the current Confederation and Trillium Line lines, adding 40 kilometres of track farther east, west and south. Stations at Jeanne d’Arc, Convent Glen (Orléans Boulevard), Place d’Orléans and Trim will be among 23 new stations being added as part of Stage 2, which is planned to be operational for 2023. Two additional stations – at the Orléans Town Centre and at Tenth Line – have been identified for the future.

We have pinned the locations of the new stations on this map. Tell us your ideas for the community's future around...

We have pinned the locations of the new stations on this map. Tell us your ideas for the community's future around these stations by placing your own pins using the following categories:

  • Mobility: Where are there hinderances to physical movement, especially on foot, bike or current transit?
  • Gathering Places: What places do you like to go to meet friends, family and neighbours?
  • Community Landmarks: What iconic landmarks are most important to keep in your neighbourhood?
