Hazelview Confirms Additional Commitments for Affordable Housing in Ottawa

Hazelview Investments (Hazelview) is confirming additional changes to its commitment to the residents of the Heron Gate community, following the City of Ottawa Planning and Development Committee approval of an Official Plan Amendment on August 26, 2021. The plan will go before Ottawa City Council on September 8, 2021.

The additional commitments include:

  • Extending affordable housing commitments for newly built construction to 15 years.
  • Following those 15 years, residents living in the designated affordable housing will be protected and will continue to pay their current affordable rent at that time, plus increases per the RTA. This protection will be written into their lease agreement.
