We have been able to steadily progress this project over the past two years, led by the ADO’s and CCBC’s strong commitment to serving the community. Early in the project, we received a grant though the CMHC Seed Funding program to conduct a feasibility study for the redevelopment of the rectory on the CCBC site.
We initially applied for Action Ottawa capital funding in the Fall of 2018 and were ultimately unsuccessful, but received encouragement from the City to continue progressing the project further and apply again during the next Action Ottawa cycle.
In the meantime, we worked to get the site rezoned to accommodate the proposed uses, and delved into the details of how the building will be managed and run. With zoning approved, community support, and a strong business case, the CCBC project was awarded capital funding through the Action Ottawa program in the Fall of 2019.
