City to Host Virtual Engagement on the Multi-Residential Interim Control By-law Study

On July 13, 2020, City Council approved Interim Control By-law 103-2020, which temporarily prohibits the use of all lands, buildings and structures for a group home, shelter, lodging house and/or dwelling with five or more dwelling units, unless exempted in the Interim Control By-law, in order to allow the City to conduct a study. On June 7, 2021, Council passed By-law 99-2021 to extend By-law 103-2020 for an additional year.

This will allow administration to review and, if deemed appropriate, implement the findings of the study.

The main purpose of the study is to determine the following:

  • The appropriate locations within the city that can accommodate additional residential density
  • How to appropriately guide growth to those geographic areas
  • The extent to which a designated area can accommodate growth
  • How to ensure compatibility within the existing neighbourhood context

The City has hired Municipal Planning Consultants, The Planning Partnership and Altus Group to undertake the study.

Join us on Tuesday, April 5, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. via Zoom to kick off the virtual engagement and hear about the study from the consultants. The event will consist of a presentation and Q&A period. Further consultation opportunities will follow the event on April 5, 2022. For more information, please contact Laura Strahl, Planner III – Special Projects ( or 519-255-6543 ext. 6396).
