Replacement of rental in commercial areas
On November 26, 2019, Council approved the Secured Rental Policy PDF file (131 KB) to encourage the construction of new rental housing. Council also directed staff to include commercial areas zoned C-2, C-2B, C-2C, and C-2C1 [hereafter 'C-2 zoning districts'] to the areas covered by the Renting Housing Stock Official Development Plan (RHS ODP), to ensure that any existing rental in these areas be replaced if redeveloped.
These amendments will be presented to City Council for review through a public hearing (targeting the first quarter of 2021). Sign up to be notified of upcoming Public Hearing
