A number of changes are coming to how housing units are built in this province, as the Ontario government works to meet it's goal of building 1.5 million homes in the next decade and make housing more affordable.
Bill 23, the 'More Homes Built Faster Act 2022', allows for up to three units to be built on a single residential lot without any by-law amendments or municipal permissions.
While there has been support for Bill 23, Ecology Ottawa is hosting a rally at Ottawa City Hall on Nov. 15 and is urging residents across the capital to join the organization's representatives and say no to the bill.
..."We are saying no to the bill," (Alice Irene Whittaker) added. "We are asking people to stand with us as this bill impacts all of us."
