  • That the joint Community and Protective Services Committee and
    Planning Committee recommend Council:

    1. Request the Mayor, on behalf of Council, write to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, asking the Province to protect existing tenants and affordable rental housing stock by updating the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 and other relevant legislation such as the Building Code Act, 1992 with the objective to:
      1. further prevent and prohibit instances of renovictions and protect existing affordable rental housing stock; and
      2. specifically address through legislative changes the instance specified in Motion 44/18 (City Council, November 25, 2020) when a landlord undertakes renovations to a rental property and then replaces the evicted tenants with those who would pay higher rents after the renovations are completed; and
    2. Direct Planning, Real Estate and Economic Development (PRED) and Community and Social Services (CSSD) Staff to, as a joint departmental work plan item, explore the feasibility and identify potential resource implications to the adoption and implementation of a By-law under Section 99.1 of the Municipal Act, to prohibit without replacement the full or partial demolition or conversion of residential and rental housing of six or more units without a permit issued by the City, possibly by amending the Demolition Control By-law, and report back by Q2 2023.



  • That the joint Community and Protective Services Committee and Planning Committee recommend that Council receive the Report on the status of inclusionary zoning and Document 1 – Framework and Guiding Principles for Inclusionary Zoning in Ottawa, and direct staff to move forward with further study, Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments, and an implementation strategy to introduce inclusionary zoning in 2023.
