Emergency and Protective Services is conducting a review of regulations governing private sector rental properties to address public health and safety, consumer protection, community nuisances and other areas of municipal concern.
This review includes a review of policy options to address housing conditions, student housing, rooming houses and shared accommodations.
Please be advised that Maclaren Municipal Consulting’s recommendations for the Rental Accommodations Study are now available on ottawa.ca.
Staff will be conducting the third round of Public Consultations in October.
The staff report and recommendations will be released in early November and presented at a Special Meeting of the Community and Protective Services Committee on November 15, followed by consideration by City Council on November 27th.
Following Council’s decisions on the recommended regulatory frameworks, staff will develop the required by-laws, policies and procedures as directed. Final by-laws will be submitted for Council approval beginning in early 2020.
