The City of Ottawa is conducting a heritage study of the veterans’ housing subdivisions in Carlington North.
Wartime Housing Limited, a federal Crown corporation, built and managed houses for war workers and veterans during a nation-wide housing shortage following the Second World War. In Ottawa, houses were built by Wartime Housing Limited in several areas, including two subdivisions in Carlington North.
Council directed heritage planning staff to conduct a heritage analysis of the veterans’ housing subdivisions in Carlington North to determine cultural heritage value and to consider strategies for conservation and commemoration.
The heritage study includes an inventory of the building stock, historical research and analysis of the streetscapes and neighbourhood context of these two wartime subdivisions.
