Infrastructure Master Plan

The Infrastructure Master Plan is currently under review. Provide feedback on Engage Ottawa!

A growth-focused plan for Ottawa’s water resource systems

The purpose of the City of Ottawa's Infrastructure Master Plan (IMP) is to support the overall city-wide Official Plan (OP) goals of creating more vibrant, healthy and complete neighbourhoods across the municipality while ensuring long-term affordability for both the City government and residents.

Efficient management, responsible operation and judiciously targeted growth of water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure play a major role in the pursuit of these goals. The IMP supports the OP by ensuring there is enough infrastructure capacity in the right areas of the municipality at the right service levels at the right time to accommodate development and redevelopment until 2031 when the City of Ottawa population is expected to reach 1.14 million.

A growth-focused plan for Ottawa’s water resource systems

The Infrastructure Master Plan (IMP) is a strategic document that supports the City’s New Official Plan by setting growth-related goals, objectives and priorities for municipal infrastructure related to water distribution, wastewater collection and storm water management.

The draft preliminary policies and program recommendations provide clarification on City expectations related to infrastructure planning, approvals and implementation. It also includes new program recommendations to support intensification.
