Programs available under the CIP include:

  • Building Conversion and Expansion Grant
  • Building Renovation and Improvement Grant
  • Façade Improvement Grant
  • Tax Increment Grant
  • Building Permit and Planning Application Fee Planning Application Fees
  • Sale of Land for Less than Market Value
  • Design, Architectural and Project Feasibility Study Grants

All proposed works must adhere to provincial and municipal regulations and requirements. The total of all grants (excluding tax assistance) shall not exceed 50% of eligible costs. Total grants per property will not exceed $10,000.
