In May, the Province of Ontario introduced the Promoting Affordable Housing Act, 2016. The legislation proposes amendments to the Planning Act that, if passed, would allow municipalities to pass inclusionary zoning by-laws. These by-laws would be subject to certain requirements in the proposed legislation, as well as by potential additional requirements that may be set out by regulation.

The Province has identified matters that may be considered by the Minister for future possible regulatory proposals to support the proposed legislative framework, and welcomes public feedback before August 16.

Hosted by Carleton University’s Centre for Urban Research and Education (CURE), in collaboration with the Alliance to End Homelessness Ottawa and the Ontario Ministries of Municipal Affairs and Housing, an information and consultation session will take place in Ottawa on Tuesday, August 9 (program from 1:00 – 3:30 pm).

  • Hear an overview of the proposed legislation from officials with the Ministries of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
  • Offer input on potential matters that may be considered by the Minister for possible future inclusionary zoning regulations, while hearing from officials on what they have heard to-date.
  • Join local stakeholders from the private and non-profit sectors for a continuing discussion on a viable inclusionary zoning framework for Ottawa.
