Community Improvement Plan 

The Community Improvement Plan (the 2015 CIP), approved November 17, 2014, offers five municipal financial incentive programs to the private sector to stimulate new investment in community renewal.

The financial incentive programs are intended to offset a portion of costs incurred by property owners in undertaking redevelopment projects, brownfield remediation projects, facade improvement projects, and residential/office conversion projects.

Guidelines for each of the programs, which set out plan details, eligibility requirements, evaluation criteria, complete application requirements, process, and which include Application Forms, are as follows:


Deadline for Submission of Applications

The municipality will be accepting applications for consideration of approval for all 5 programs, subject to satisfying complete application requirements, until May 31, 2019. After this date, the Community Improvement Plan will be under review, and no applications will be accepted until such time as the review is completed, anticipated to be in the first quarter, 2020.

If you have any questions regarding the financial incentive programs, please contact the Planning and Building Services Department at 905.688.5601 ext. 1660 or by email at
