Downtown Residential Possibilities Program

Recognizing the demand for more housing in the downtown core, this program allows property owners to explore the possibility of adding or converting a second or third storey to their building for residential purposes.  Property owners will receive a 50% rebate to cover the costs of a structural engineer’s assessment of their building(s).  Review the guidelines to see if your property will apply.
