Community Improvement Plan (CIP) Update

Monday, April 11, 2022 at 6 p.m. via Zoom 

Note: the Council Meeting will commence at 6 p.m. but there may be other preceding items which could impact the 6 p.m. start time for this Public Meeting. Please consult the Council agenda available online the Friday before the Monday meeting.

  • Or call 647-374-4685


The Town’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP) encourages private sector investment and revitalization throughout the community by providing financial incentives to eligible projects within particular areas of the Town.

Since its approval in 2010, the Town's CIP has been successful at stimulating and/or supporting private sector investment, especially as it relates to building, façade and landscape improvements, as well as environmental site assessments. Ten years later, the Town is looking to build upon the existing CIP's strengths and successes, while also exploring potential additional tools and incentives to stimulate broader community improvement. 

In November 2020, the Town retained Sierra Planning to conduct a comprehensive review and update of the Town's existing CIP. The end-product will be a modern and effective economic development tool to guide and support the Town's economic development priorities - aligned with key Town plans, strategies, programs and initiatives.

Main areas for consideration as part of the CIP Update will include:

  • Affordable housing
  • Brownfield redevelopment
  • Storefront/main street revitalization
  • Agriculture/agri-business
  • Heritage
  • Arts and culture
  • Climate change
  • Accessibility
  • Economic Assistance Program
