When will the zones be updated to reflect the minimum allowable densities in transit-oriented areas set out by the Province?

Zone updates must consider revisions to the density bonus and rental incentives program and need to be aligned with the DCC program update and new ACC program. The Province will be releasing further information with respect to how municipalities can apply density bonus in the fall of 2024. In addition, the Province has stated that municipalities can still apply current density bonus programs until June 2025. Given this context, the zone updates are targeted for completion in spring 2025, in coordination with the Rental Incentives Program Review.

Zone updates will determine the new density allocations within the minimum allowable densities (i.e. tenure and commercial requirements). This may include provisions for the regulation of tenure through the City’s Rental Incentive Program Review to ensure housing needs are considered in new housing supply.
