A Zoning By-law is a regulatory document that implements the policy direction outlined in the
Official Plan. The Comprehensive Zoning By-law (2009-141) was approved by City Council in August 2009.
On October 4, 2021 City Council adopted two By-laws to amend Zoning By-law 2009-141 with the intent of facilitating more and better affordable housing options. See
Zoning By-law Updates for Affordable Housing for details.
