The Residential Infill Grant is a short-term stimulus for new construction or reconstruction residential projects to increase the vibrancy of core neighbourhoods through infill development.
Infill refers to the development of vacant or under-utilized parcels within existing commercial, industrial, or residential areas already served by utilities infrastructure, and that have a total developable land inventory comprising less than 10% of the existing base. This grant is only applicable to properties within the Residential Infill Area as identified in Policy 357. Please refer to the map below.
This is a$15,000 grant per infill lot for new construction or reconstruction projects.
