CCOC’s mission as a non-profit housing provider is to create, maintain, and promote affordable housing. This means we have good quality buildings and apartments in walkable downtown neighbourhoods, as well as diverse housing options. So, what’s redevelopment? Simply put, it’s a new construction that replaces existing buildings. Redevelopment helps address the need for affordable housing in the City of Ottawa by creating new family homes all while preserving neighbourhoods.
